I was born and raised in Alaska, and I want our home to be everything for my daughters’ generation that it’s been for me. That bright future is possible if we work together to make wise decisions for the long term.
We can create opportunities for Alaskans without sacrificing our health or our cherished outdoor traditions. I’m running to continue the hard work of bringing Alaskans together, so we can all rise to the challenge of a better tomorrow.
Diversifying our state’s revenues is a crucial step to diversifying our economy. If all economic activity pays in, sustainable fisheries, renewable energy, and knowledge industries won’t be stuck forever playing second fiddle to the historic resource extraction businesses.
Let’s build a healthy, vibrant Alaskan future—one where wild public lands, prosperous habitat, and quality of life are cherished for all the values they provide.

I believe Alaska can be a place with a diverse economy, a world-class education system, a thriving Indigenous community, and democratic institutions protected as the Assembly has protected them these past two years– with Vote By Mail, automatic voter registration, and elected officials willing to resolutely fight for their election staff.
A healthy environment is essential for Alaska. Wild fish and game are cornerstones of many Alaskans' physical, economic, and cultural well-being, and the species Alaskans rely on are inseparable from the ecosystems that support them. Addressing climate change is a global issue, but Alaska is on the frontlines, whether we like it or not.
I am motivated to create systemic change that improves the quality of life for all Alaskans, addressing economic injustice, racial injustice, environmental injustice, and to advance the human rights of all Alaskans by working for safe and healthy communities. I use my lived experience from a disadvantaged background and interactions with our child welfare, juvenile justice, criminal justice, and social welfare systems to make systemic change.
