Please share briefly what inspired you to run for this office and why you feel you’re qualified for the position.
I am a concerned Nevadan. I am a wife and mother of three CCSD graduates. I have felt the pressure of mandatory vaccine mandates in order to secure my job, visit a dying loved one or denied the ability to eat in a restaurant. I am a safety professional hired for common sense and god judgement and trained to remain calm and react in the name of safety. As a 16 year career flight attendant I wear many hats. Frontline worker, server, first responder, bouncer, firefighter and raft commander to name a few. I also have experience auditing bills for telecommunications and medicaid as well as building DIA and frame relay systems.
Would you support allocating more state funds to help DACA recipients to help with higher education?
No. Its sad that these kids were not legalized as children with the help of their parents. I believe an expedited citizenship program should be passed by the dreamers before funds are allocated to them.
How will the state fight the growing issue of homelessness that is increasing in our communities and use funds to expand on shelters for these community members?
Some homeless want absolutely no help. Some just want to go home and do not have the resources. Some need mental health help to reenter society. If the state has millions to create new sparkly lights on Fremont we have money to build lodging to get people off the streets and partnering with programs aimed at helping these men and women succeed in society.
Nevada has historically protected the right to abortion, including protecting the right in statute 30 years ago by a vote of the people. However, there remain barriers to access in the state. Do you support not only the right to abortion but policies that improve equitable access to abortion care?
No. I believe the unborn child has the right to life. Many families are willing to adopt an unwanted baby.
The state of Nevada is facing an unprecedented shortage of health care providers – a problem that impacts every area of medicine, including the provision of sexual and reproductive care. Do you support removing the physician-only requirement and allowing advanced practice clinicians (APCs) to provide this vital care to patients with training and certification?
I think alternative programs under licensed professionals is good. I believe as long as the covid 19 vaccine is required we will be in a health care shortage in Nevada for a long time.
It is well documented that patients of color face greater obstacles to obtaining sexual and reproductive health care than non-Hispanic white Americans – a pattern that results in worse health outcomes overall for BIPOC patients. Do you not only acknowledge systemic racism’s role in public health disparities but will you pursue policies that seek to rectify the historical harm of systemic racism and advance equitable access to health care?
I think insurance companies have priced healthcare out for many americans. I have not seen racism in healthcare. I see lower income families not getting quality insurance, resulting in a lack of quality service. Lets go back to cash pay prices and make health care affordable for all.
Knowing that the death penalty is exorbitantly expensive, racially discriminatory, and does not promote true healing for victims family members, do you support its abolition and do you think ending the death penalty is a crucial part of criminal justice reform?
I believe in the death penalty.
True Colors United, a national organization that implements innovative solutions to youth homelessness that focus on the unique experiences of LGBTQ+ young people continues to rate Nevada as critically low, for its State Index on Youth Homelessness (in collaboration with the National Homelessness Law Center) that ranks and scores laws and policies related to preventing and addressing youth homelessness in the United States. Are you willing to support legislation that helps to fund and provide oversight regulations to youth homelessness services?
Youth homelessness should be addressed. I support programs helping youth find their way in a safe environment.
Anti-transgender bills are being introduced across the United States that attempt to prevent trans people from having access to health care, gender reassignment surgery, and access to sports in schools. Do you support transgender equality and access to healthcare and an athletic school experience?
No. Girls should compete against girls and boys against boys. Teenage years are complicated and confusing. Let kids be kids. Let parents decide their kids medical decisions. I think an age requirement should be associated with surgeries or hormone therapy just like a tattoo or rhinoplasty.
We have seen rental rates increasing at a very alarming rate, in some instances upwards of 30%. How do you see the Nevada Legislature taking action to keep Nevadans in their homes and not being priced out?
We need a law keeping rates normal for locals verses non residents. Hawaii has a program like this.
Nevada has one of the largest shares of federal public land of any state in the country, providing important wildlife habitat, places to hunt, camp, fish and hike, and acting as the foundation of a billion dollar outdoor industry. Even so, some lawmakers have promoted policies that seek wholesale transfer of federal ownership of our national lands to states. A) Would you support or oppose these land transfer policies? B) Would should the State of Nevada’s role be in the management and ownership of federal land?
Honestly if its not broken why fix it. We have so much land to play on in this state. Lets play outside.
State investments in conservation provide resources for a wide range of public benefit, like the management of wildlife and state land, and the creation and maintenance of trails and other recreational facilities. In 2019, the Legislature approved $217 million of bonding authority for conservation purposes, including for the acquisition of land for new state parks. A) Do you support or oppose state investment in conservation? B) Has Nevada’s investment in land conservation been too little, too much, or about right, and how would you change it?
The state has so many wonderful green spaces, trails, parks, splash pads and sports parks. Nevada has done wonderful job providing outdoor spaces. An outstanding job has been done. However Lake Mead could use some help.
Would you support addressing public health disparities in Nevada’s diverse Spanish speaking population by funding a “Promotores de Salud” program through the Nevada Office of New Americans that provides year round, culturally competent education and community engagement in Spanish on public health issues?
We have a large Spanish and Asian community. I support health education to all communities.
What are you doing to center communities of color and low-income communities in your work, and how do you ensure that equity is part of every decision you make?
After feeling discrimination for my vaccine status At work I decided to Battle for Nevada. I follow the Golden Rule. We volunteer at church and have sponsored many children in camps or fundraisers.
The APIA community faces the largest unmet financial needs when it comes to higher education. Nevada has the highest student loan default rate in the country. In Nevada, there are 333,100 student loan borrowers, $11.5 Billion in student loan debt, and $34,700 in average debt per borrower. What policies can we implement to ensure students and families are protected from predatory lenders and undue financial burdens?
Lets bring technical certifications back to high school. Then kids can graduate ready to be productive citizens in our state, debt free. If they want to pursue higher education the Millennial scholarship will help. I would love to see a lottery that could contribute state scholarships to GPA’s of 3.0 or higher.
Latinx communities are extremely concerned about the drought and ongoing water shortages. What would you do to ensure our families have a sustainable water supply, not just now but also future generations?
My understanding is we have upwards of 45 years of water in Nevada. Also underground water has been noted in Pahrump. I do not think we will experience a shortage. The water authority has done a great job with our water recycling.
One out of seven people in Clark County are food insecure. What policies would you propose to ensure people are not residing in food deserts and have access to healthy food and water sources?
Food insecurity is tough and I am meeting with Three Square to look into this issue. Educating families on the many food-banks and resources available in the valley would help. Central church has a huge pantry in Henderson. Many are proud and have to be encouraged to accept assistance in their time of need, then in the future they can be the help for other.
