She is a mother of 4 children and as she was part of the LVMPD family for 15 years, she is a supporter of law enforcement and the family unit. She attended her school years and college education in Nevada and wants her "home" to mean "home" to everyone else. That is why she has been an advocate for stimulating the economy by opening up business, get more resources and support to small businesses, and get tourism elevated.
