Volunteer Service Grove Food Bank, Cornerstone Church, GrandLakeLife Ministry, OK2A, the Ekklesia of Oklahoma, and the Libertarian Party of Oklahoma.
I believe my principles that are firmly rooted in integrity, individual liberty, equal justice, equal opportunity, free markets, free trade, the Constitution, and my Christian faith are desperately needed in the U.S. House and would best represent the people of Oklahoma's 2nd Congressional District.
I have a 10-point plan to defend life. It includes abolishing human abortion, protecting the 2nd Amendment, localizing education, unleashing healthcare, cutting spending, reforming occupational licensing, defending religious liberty, defending farms and private property rights, ending the wars and defending our veterans, decriminalizing cannabis, ending the prosecution of victimless crimes, and converting our punitive justice system to one that focuses on direct public safety and restoration instead of mass incarceration.
I am nonpartisan since I am a member and candidate of the Libertarian Party. I have the courage to stand by the people even when there is pressure from corporate interests, lobbyists, and the political establishment. I am not a millionaire or a career politician. I am a follower of Christ, a family man, a patriotic Oklahoman, and an independent thinker. People can vote for me regardless of who they support for President of the United States.

Volunteer Service I have always given back to given back to my community by volunteering at Womens shelters. I have helped create resumes for women returning to work and assisted with preparing a resume
Oklahomans deserve a leader who will work harder, listen more and serve their constituents. This race isnt just about a single seat in Congress it's about bringing pride and prosperity back to Oklahoma with an understanding of "we" over "me"
Protecting and Improving Public Education- Growing up in public school and the mother of a 9 year old in public school I understand the value of a quality public education. Invest in our vocational programs and community colleges. We pay more for our health care and prescription drugs per capita than any other developed nation. I plan to fight to lower prescription drugs by allowing Medicare to negotiate directly with pharmaceutical companies. I would like to implement a public health care option which has broad public support so that can expand health care access to the millions that do not have it while making health care more affordable for American who are struggling to pay their deductibles and co-pays.
I am not a politician, but I am a Navy Veteran, Cherokee citizen wife and mother that is willing to work hard for the people of Oklahoma's District 2
