Fighting for the Health of Rural Montana

Putting My Experience to Work

I'm a retired physician who practiced for over 30 years, caring for critically ill patients and their families with dedication, compassion and honesty. I know the importance of our rural clinics, critical access hospitals and first-responders in this vast state. As a fisherman and a hunter, I also understand the importance of clean water, wild spaces, access to public lands and how these affect our physical and mental well-being. As a former medical educator, I value quality public education. And as a rancher's wife, I appreciate the economic challenges confronting agricultural communities. As your legislator, I will fight for the health of rural Montana - healthy people, healthy land, healthy economy!

 I will advocate for:

Rural Healthcare

  • ​Support for rural clinics and hospitals

  • Mental health and suicide prevention programs

  • Protection of Medicaid expansion

  • Lower vital prescription drug costs

Quality Public Education
