I am a mother, author, practicing therapist, and Certified Executive Coach. After receiving my MBA from Harvard and working on Wall Street, I discovered my love of helping people and families cope with an ever-changing world. This led to a career change and becoming a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. Having shaped key figures in the business world into better communicators and better leaders, I am uniquely suited to represent the interests of our communities in the state Senate—starting on Day One—by building consensus and delivering results.
In Hartford, I look forward to building on the work that has already been done to address the mental health crisis in our state. As a mental health professional, I will fight for additional resources and access to mental healthcare services, especially for young people who have struggled through the pandemic.
I plan to introduce a state constitutional amendment to secure a woman's right to choose in our state. This is the firewall and extra protection we will need going forward to protect our reproductive freedom in Connecticut.
I support early voting in Connecticut. Early voting allows for more access to voting for individuals who work long hours and are unable to get to the polls on election day. Allowing more individuals to participate in the democratic process only strengthens our democracy.
After learning about the Dobbs decision, like many others in our nation, I was devastated. This past cycle, the general assembly passed H.B. No. 5414, which expanded women's access to reproductive healthcare. My opponent did not support this bill and would not support a constitutional amendment to secure a woman's right to choose in our State Constitution.
I look forward to going to Hartford and being a fierce advocate to protect women's reproductive freedoms in our state.
