We all want to make a difference in the world. I started in graduate school doing cancer-related research, but realized I wanted to work with patients directly. Over time I started teaching more, because instead of helping a single patient, my students would eventually help thousands of patients.
Now, as your representative, I have the ability to make a an even bigger impact in my communities. The decisions I make, the bills I propose and support, the votes I cast in the House chamber — they all affect my family, my neighbors, and our futures.
