I own a national mail order business known as The Soap Lady, now in its 41st successful year. I am a retired dairy farmer, so I know what it means to be fiscally responsible.

We have three children and eight grandchildren, all of whom live within an hour of home so we get to see them often.

Jim and I worked hard. We played by the rules to pay for our farm so that we could save up for our retirement. We are married 45 years. We now raise beef cattle.

I am running for public office because I want to live in a society where everyone cares about one another as much as they care about themselves. We ALL do better when We ALL do better.
