“My mother and father raised me to not judge a book by its cover but to read the pages to understand the story. I have carried this approach with my family, into situations, and in meeting people. We live in a more polarizing world but I will work with, through and by people to find solutions today for a better tomorrow.”
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.

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.
While I was knocking on doors, Robbie stopped from cutting his grass to ask me some questions on issues that concerned him. As he will state, and which I hear quite often is that questions are going unanswered. Being a representative as well as working for a company, I know how important it is to be available and responsive to your constituents.
