Running as Democrat
I am a working mom, caregiver daughter, wife, business owner, church-goer, active community member, and 20-year resident of Manchester, and I’m running to represent Manchester Wards 1, 3, 10, 11, and 12 in the State Legislature. New Hampshire succeeds when everyone has the opportunity to thrive with quality jobs, quality schools and quality healthcare, and as your state representative I will fight for that for you. I bring over 20 years’ experience working to improve health and well-being for people and communities as a family physician, researcher, educator and public health practitioner, including 10 years of service in state government as former director of the Office of Health Equity. I am running now to bring voice to working families’ needs and concerns in crafting our laws to assure opportunity for everyone to succeed and that New Hampshire remains a vibrant and welcoming state. I will fight for the people of NH – to assure access to quality jobs, quality schools and quality healthcare for all, to support the ability for all to succeed and thrive to ensure the NH advantage for generations to come.
