I come from a family that values hard work, education, independent thinking, and public service. These are the values that I live by and will bring to Hartford to represent the residents of Fairfield and Trumbull.
I am running for State Representative for Connecticut’s 134th House District because I feel my lived experiences have given me a unique perspective on how we can make Connecticut a place where people from all backgrounds can thrive.
Training for a career in public health taught me how to research and analyze complex issues and how to develop actionable, measurable approaches to solving community problems. Before moving to Connecticut seven years ago I put my training to work advocating for such things as state child health care programs like HUSKY, establishing a tax credit for disabled people to make their homes more accessible and establishing the only federally-funded research program dedicated to studying multiple sclerosis.
Now that I and my family have chosen Connecticut to be our forever home, I want to put my education, professional skills, and lived experiences to work for the people of the 134th. I pledge to represent all of your interests, values, and hopes for our state.
