  • Residence. Dillsburg
  • Experience. Teacher, Northern York County School District
  • Top Priorities. School choice is not a threat; it’s an opportunity for all schooling options to compete and improve. Federal law and Article VII of the Pennsylvania Constitution call for an election day, not an election season. Any infringement upon the fundamental rights recorded in either the U.S. or Pennsylvania constitution is a threat to individual liberty and the Republic as a whole. I will protect the sanctity of life, because it is the most fundamental human right.

  • Top Priorities. The government, on a federal nor state level, should not be interfering with rights and privileges as people: the right to love who we want, to consume what we want, to enjoy the media that we want to, to do what we desire or need to with our bodies, to worship who we want and as we please, among many other things. Pay teachers a living wage. Advocate for Pennsylvanians with Disabilities.
  • Endorsements.
  • Quotable. “I am a registered Democrat, and I’m running as a Democrat, but my values are not that simple; I merely chose to be associated with the party that more closely matches my beliefs, but that doesn’t earn my loyalty, nor secure my vote.”
