My family and I live near the minor league baseball stadium, North Kiwanis Park and Northside IGA. I was born in Missoula, but grew up in Great Falls in a home near Gibson Park and the downtown area. My parents grew up in North Central Montana, up along the Hi-Line, and moved to Great Falls in 1988.
I have been married to Hannah for 16 years and have three children, Ryan 13, Kaylyn 12, and Aidan 10.
We enjoy camping and enjoying Montana in our truck and camper. We bring along our two pups a schnauzer/border collie mix and the other a border-doodle to better enjoy the outdoors with. We spend the majority of our time outdoors at the nearby reservoirs, the Little Belts, and the Rocky Mountain Front. We also like to take road trips and explore our beautiful state of Montana and other western states (Utah is a favorite).
I am a Certified Public Accountant but my main job is at the Great Falls Rescue Mission as the operations director (been there 10 years). I have also ran a small business, tax preparation, and am on my fourth tax season. I have served on a number of boards and volunteered for organizations such as the City of Great Falls on the Audit Committee, Echoz, and the Great Falls Pachyderm Club.
I am on my second term in the Montana House of Representatives (2017-2018 and 2021-2022). I am proud to have passed 7 bills over my terms, including the deregulation of the taxi industry, decriminalizing not wearing a mask on taxpayer funded property, fighting for laws that prevent discrimination based on vaccination status, and knocking down over zealous health department mandates.
