Over the years I have had the great privilege and honor of representing Concord Ward 9 in the New Hampshire State Legislature and the City Council.


My husband and I have deep roots in the Capital region. We bought our home in Concord over 30 years ago.  Since then, we’ve raised our son who is a graduate of Concord’s public schools.

 I’m running for State Senate because now, more than ever, we need experienced leaders with a proven track record of accomplishment.  While on both the Concord City Council and in the NH House of Representatives, I have fought to support public schools, strengthen

working families, create jobs and a more family friendly economy, protect our natural resources, and support women’s health care rights, to name just a few of my priorities.  


I am proud of my reputation as a champion for those who sometimes slip thought the cracks, for those who need a hand-up and for those who live uncomfortably close to the edge.  What we’ve learned during the Covid-19 crisis is, the edge is closer than many of us would like to admit.  In the State Senate, I’ll focus on providing those in need with a safety net, while simultaneously working to make all our futures brighter and more prosperous.
