It’s been an honor to serve you as the State Representative of the 48th District and I am excited to announce I have filed to run for this seat again in November 2024.

We have made significant progress over the past two years by lowering your individual income tax form 6% to 4%, provided record setting funding for schools, passed several workforce partnership initiatives including attracting and retaining healthcare providers, provided for mental health funding and stronger policies, and improved transportation infrastructure. These are only a couple of the bills that I have sponsored and passed, but I realize that there is more that can be accomplished.

With your support and consultation, I will strive to make our community and Commonwealth a better place to live work and play.


Kentucky FOP

It is an honor to work with the women and men in the blue and I sincerely appreciate the KY FOP’s endorsement. These women and men don’t know if they are coming home after their shift, so we should do what we can to support them and their families.

Dr. Mark McGrath

Dr. Mark McGrath is on the front lines in providing healthcare, but he also oversees the roads in the City of Brownsboro Farm. I helped secured over $50 million in road improvements for District 48 which included $1,320,000 for putting turn lanes in at the intersection of KY22 and Goose Creek Road.  This project is right in front of the City and was designed to reduce congestion. I followed up with the City and as Dr. McGrath tells us how they had some challenges and where I stepped in to see the project through.

Karen Scott

Karen Scott is a professional engineer who owns her own business, called Inspired Strategies, serving clients across the country. We first met about 25 years when my company was bidding on a project she was overseeing at a utility company. As her career progressed in taking on more responsibilities and leadership roles, her professionalism, intelligence, integrity, and humility remained strong and consistent. I know many businesswomen and businessmen and she is one of the best.




Melissa Cahill

Seven years ago, I was asked to run a mental health center after years of running a small business. This was a big change, but one that really gave me a deep understanding on how people treat mental health wellness as taboo. We should not treat people based on initial impressions, but by taking the time to learn their story.

A part of my objective when I decided to run for state representative was to bring awareness, more funding and better policies to helping people navigate these mental health challenges. This includes supporting K-12 mental health counselors, providing law enforcement officers and their families to receive counseling after a traumatic event, providing incentives to encourage people to enter the mental health field, and developing an app for K-12 students to have access to mental health counselors 24/7. 

Melissa Cahill reached out to me about her story on eating disorders and I was impressed with her passion and drive to address this issue. Her personal story touched me and I didn’t think twice about helping her and the National Eating Disorder Association.

She details how we worked together for a greater cause, but before you listen, if you or someone you know suffers from an eating disorder, depression, anxiety, addiction, or have suicide ideation, I strongly encourage you or them to find help. I will be happy to provide the necessary resources.
