Education

I support a parents choice for their Children’s education.  I also support that parents are the responsible persons for their children.

My children attended our homeschool, and private schools for the majority of their education.

Choosing a public school education, a private school education, or a home school education is a family’s choice.  You may not realize this but all of the ARMED FORCES Academies accept candidates from each of these venues. The value of the education is measured by parents, teachers, and the student.

I am a nurse practitioner and midwife, who cares about you.  I have great problem solving skills becuase I listen first.  I have been know to say “everyone woman deserves and incredible birth day, despite their ability to pay for prenatal care”. This stands today in my heart.  Every Kansas’s deserves the best health care, despite how they pay for it or their ability to pay.  Our state aids thousands already with the KanCare program.  Access to quality health care providers is a priority to me.

Health Care

small business

I have started several small business over the past 25 years.  The non-profit Mercy &Truth Medical Mission started here in Shawnee, in 1994 and then New Birth Company in 2010.  Sustainability has always been foremost if the quest to maintain solvency.  Finding the right people to work and keep them, keeps a founder up at night.  I support small businesses and reducing the administrative burden of being paid for services rendered.   Furthermore, I would like to see cost reductions of false unemployment claims actually returned to the former employee.  Finally, to reduce restrictions for a small business to strive, be healthy and produce their products.  I support small businesses.
