I am the proud mom of two precocious kids, ages 1 and 3, and three amazingly resilient and smart step-kids, ages 9, 11, and 17. All of my kids instill in me my greatest sense of pride and determination. I aspire to leave them a world that is safer, freer than the world they came into. A world where they have economic security, where they can worship as they choose, and where they can be who they are. My husband, Brandon, is an extraordinary partner, and together we’re raising our family in District 31, where we first met as kids.
