My first priority would be to give power to make medical decisions back to health care providers and not the state legislature. This means the power to provide necessary care to everyone, including pregnant women, and LGBTQA persons. I would also ensure that other professionals, such as librarians and teachers, are free to do their jobs without government interference.

Other issues I'd like to address are expanding health care access, school funding. the housing crisis, addressing the population growth, and how this affects our natural resources, and worker's rights. I realize we have many more issues facing Idahoans, and my goal is to listen to what the people want.
I have been caring for people for 46 years as an RN and some time in a public health role. In that time, I have seen life threatening complications of pregnancy, as well as what happens when people don't have access to comprehensive health care, including preventive care.
The strict abortion ban is number one. We are losing qualified physicians, and labor and delivery units.

Access to health care, affordable housing, attacks on libraries, and public education, including higher education
Absolutely yes. The legislature is not qualified to make these decisions about women's bodies. Tying the hands of physicians is a danger to all women in the state, because we are losing providers, which limits access to care for all of us. A majority of Idahoans oppose the strict ban, and it is the job of the legislature to represent the people.
If elected, I would listen, be inclusive, and do my best to represent the people of Idaho, and not take orders from narrow interests. I am a 6th generation Idahoan, and I love my state.
