I am a third-generation Alaskan and a proud mom of four. I grew up in an Alaskan family that struggled with addiction, mental illness, and abuse, but I was determined to break the cycle. My community and my school teachers lifted me up and gave me the tools and confidence I needed to persevere. I served Alaska under Republican and Independent governors and led a non-partisan grassroots movement to restore education funding and improve our schools.
By bringing Republicans, Democrats, and Independents together, we were able to deliver real results for Alaskan families.
