I was born in Rapid City, South Dakota on Ellsworth Airforce base. My parents moved us back to their roots here in St. George when I was a young child. I loved growing up right here in Southern Utah. There was never a dull moment in a home with 6 older brothers. I started running the St. George Marathon annually at age 12. I love all the outdoor activities we have right here in our backyard.
I received my undergraduate degrees in nursing from DSU and BYU-I. I went on to receive my graduate degree and become a Board Certified Family Nurse Practitioner through the University of South Alabama. I've worked in Emergency Medicine for the past decade. I also own and practice out of my own small medical clinic, Bella Tu Medical.
I have traveled on multiple humanitarian missions with the St. George Rotary Club, as well as several non-profit organizations. I sit on the board of Strobell Family Foundation which focuses on humanitarian efforts in 3rd world countries.
I thank God everyday for my amazing family and country. I've been married to my best friend & husband Joshua for 14 years. Our 2 young kids are our entire world. They are who inspire me to be involved in keeping this amazing community free from government overreach and centered on Constitutional principles. I am passionate about protecting our children's futures and keeping this amazing community the place we all know and love.
