A lifelong commitment
I was born in Minnetonka, and I have lived in the west metro for more than 45 years.
I graduated from Hopkins High School, and earned a degree in natural resource management from the University of Minnesota.
After college, I worked for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources in northwestern Minnesota, and then for Hennepin County Environmental Services.
I have been married to my husband, Craig, for 25 years, and we have two sons: Jack graduated last year from Macalester College, and Charlie attends the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities.
In 2012, Minnetonka residents elected me to an at-large Minnetonka City Council seat. I served until 2018, when voters in Minnetonka, Plymouth and Woodland elected me to represent District 44B in the State Legislature. With last year's redistricting, I I am now proud to represent the new District 45B constituents in Minnetonka, Woodland, Wayzata, Deephaven and Shorewood.
