Biographical Info:I was born and raised in Heron Lake. I graduation from Heron Lake Okabena Lakefield. My siblings and I worked with our parents their farming operation and that was the start of my hard work ethic. Currently I live with my family in rural Fulda in Nobles County.

I am a Christian and I use my Christian conservative values to lead me in my daily life.
Statement:I was inspired into action watching the effects of what the covid virus brought to Minnesota as well as this country. It was heartbreaking to watch while children were forced to distance learn. It was upsetting to watch the forced business closures. Not only that, it made me angry to watch the rioting the Governor allowed to happened, which destroyed so may businesses in the name of peaceful protests. I am running because I want to fight for and with the people of our district, to ensure a responsible and prosperous Minnesota, with less government, less regulations, lower taxes and an economy that works for everyone. I want to fight for free and fair elections, school choice, 2nd amendment rights, protecting the lives of the unborn, supporting our police, and work to get the surplus back to the taxpayers.
