I was honored to be elected and officially started serving as commissioner of Platte County's first district (southern Platte County) on January 1, 2017 for a four-year term. I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Missouri, Columbia and Master of Public Administration degree from the University of Missouri, Kansas City. Previously, I served as an analyst at the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City drafting multi-million dollar budgets. While taking time off work to raise four active children, I volunteered in their schools and was also appointed to serve on and lead local committees concerning public safety and health.
Over the last 3-1/2 years our commission has: Prevented property tax increases by aggressively fighting Zona Rosa garage bailouts in court and winning; Established the CARES Act grant program at PlatteCountyEDC.com to prioritize small businesses’ survival during shutdowns; Prioritized safety with more school resource officers and secured 45 Highway turn-lane safety improvements (at Monticello/Riss Lake Drive and Klamm Road); Saved your tax dollars by reducing staff, secured a new healthcare broker for county employees and hired a new medical examiner service; Funded maintenance for our parks, trails, and community centers, green-lit new trails, and advocated for a new 12-turf field youth sports complex at 152 & Platte Purchase Drive; Launched an innovative PlatteParks.com website that lists every park, trail and community center in the county (no matter who owns them); Increased transparency and accessibility with online video and documents of administrative sessions.
