Current Occupation: Sales | Birthdate: 12/02/1968
I am a seventh generation Texan and can trace family to the American Revolution. My family has farmed for over 100 years with my grandfather last crop of cotton in 1985. I was born in Petersburg, Texas. I graduated high school from Shallowater ISD and attended Texas Tech University, before joining the Naval Reserves. My husband, Walter and I will be married 10 years in August next year. I joined the Libertarian Party in 2013. I ran for the Texas House District 88 and the Texas Senate District 28 in 2014. The Senate race was by special election. I also made a bid for the nomination of vice presidential candidate in 2016 without success. I serve by election as the current county chair of Hale County and as the Libertarian Party of Texas' executive committee representative for Senate District 28.28 and served as Platform Committee chair at the state level for two terms.
Why are you running for office?
The Freedoms of Texas and Texans are being infringed upon by those in D.C. and Austin. Working together we can move Texas in the right direction. I want a Texas government that represents all Texans and not an elite few.

Why should supporters of the Texas Nationalist Movement support your candidacy?
I stand with the Libertarian Party and the plank in the platform that reads:
IV.1.c. Texas Independence.
The Libertarian Party of Texas (LPTexas) fully supports the rights of the people to alter their form of government. As the U.S. federal government is increasingly expanding its influence well beyond its Constitutional authority and clearly violating citizens’ rights as guaranteed by the Bill of Rights, the right of the people of Texas to alter their form of government, as stated in Article I Section 2 of the Texas Constitution, must be acknowledged by allowing Texans to have an honest and frank discussion on the merits of independence and being allowed to vote accordingly to reassert Texas’ Independence.
