My Top 3 Priorities

  • My top priority is Federal investment in local infrastructure needs including regional commuter projects and water storage.
  • I'm also equally passionate about finding a solution to making healthcare affordable and patient centered without socializing medicine.
  • I will support securing our borders and reforming immigration and adopting e-verify for employment eligibility verification to stem the foreign invasion of our Nation.

Growing up on farms and ranches as a kid gave me a deep love for agriculture, animals and machinery. My greatest passion has always been and will always be coaching young men, which I began doing right out of high school. I've always taught the value of hard work, honor and never quitting!

I paid my way through college and later veterinary school working as a firefighter & EMT which engrained an immense sense of public service into my core values.

For the past 25 years, I have worked as a Large Animal veterinarian for Mid Valley Large Animal Service in Turlock, CA. From 200-2006 I was a member of the Turlock City Planning Comission and fro 2006-2010 I was a member of the Turlock City Council, lead of the budget committee, vice-mayor and member of the Stanislaus County Council of Governments.
