I began serving in the South Dakota Legislature in January 2013 and am now serving in the second year of my first term in the South Dakota Senate. It is a privilege to represent District 24 which encompasses Hughes, Stanley, Sully, and Hyde counties. I am chair of the Senate Transportation committee and also serve on the Senate State Affairs, Ag & Natural Resources, and Retirement Laws committees.
I grew up on a cattle ranch in western South Dakota with five brothers. Dad taught me how to handle livestock…Mom taught me how to handle life with all those brothers. Both taught me the value of serving others.
My husband, Ron, and I have two married daughters. We are active in our church and community, volunteering in a variety of areas.
