What ideas do you have to better the lives of Oklahoma’s children? 

I am interested in helping to secure funding that will help organization such as OICA bring back for programs like teen pregnancy prevention, fit kids coalition, the 0-6 program, and many others that help children in Oklahoma the resources they need to be successful.

What have you done to support children prior to this election?

Prior to this election I have supported children through many different avenues, some in partnership with OICA. I served on the YMCA’s Teen Empower ME Board. The mission of the YMCA’s Teen Empower ME Board is to prevent adolescents from engaging in high risk behaviors through youth development strategies that promote a healthy and successful transition into adulthood. I have also lead a panel discussion and helped to develop activities that could be integrated into the lives of Oklahoma Youth. I helped bring the Michelle Obama let’s move campaign for the Northeast Academy for Health Science and Engineering because helping to declining the rates of childhood obesity is a cause that is important to me. I am the founder of the Global Millennial Project (GMP), as a Global community service project that is designed to be a one stop shop for Millennials to use evidence based research, and become exposed to success stories that will inspire and influence global citizens to strive for abundance in their lives. The mission of The Global Millennial Project: to educate, advocate, and link millennials to a network of services for everyday living. Our project uses education, employment, and economic development to further enhance the lives of the next generation.

What will you do to support families in your new role, if elected?

If elected I will work to support all families in Oklahoma but especially the needs of families in House District 99. We must support criminal justice reform, and programs that assist children who have incarcerated parents. I believe that we have to create a stepping system that allows families to still maintain government resources while they are working to become established.
