It is the honor of my lifetime to serve my neighbors in Senate District 12. As your voice in Carson City, I try to approach every opportunity with an open mind and to work in a collaborative manner. Should you ever require assistance, have an idea for future legislation, or want to share your thoughts on legislation before the Senate, please do not hesitate to contact me at


During the 2023 Legislative Session, I was proud to champion legislation that works to improve the lives of all Nevadans and their families. Together with my colleagues, we:


  • Made record investments to K-12 education, increasing funding by $2 billion- a record for the State of Nevada and the largest increase in the country

  • Cut red tape making it easter for Nevadans to open and operate their businesses

  • Protected privacy rights that allow women to make medical decisions that are best for them and their families 

  • Strengthened laws that crack down on fentanyl traffickers and high level drug dealers

As a first term Senator, I was incredibly proud to have eight pieces of legislation signed into law (the most of any freshman legislator), to chair the Natural Resources committee and to chair Nevada’s first Tourism Caucus.

My legislation ranged from ensuring protections to living organ donors (SB 132), expanding graduate medical education opportunities (SB 350), and capping the fees that may be charged to furnish health care records electronically (SB 283). I created career advancement opportunities for state employees possessing commensurate job experience without the requirement of a bachelor’s degree (SB 287) and supported micro-businesses and economic development in Nevada (SB 181). Additionally, I brought legislation on behalf of educators, students, first responders and the resorts community.

As Chair of the Natural Resources committee, I worked with my colleagues on legislation regarding wildlife, water resources, mining, agriculture and emissions. Among these bills heard and passed out of committee were those promoting water conservation, protecting pollinators and promoting urban and community forestry.


Working alongside Vice Chair Assemblyman Howard Watts and the Nevada Resorts Association, the Tourism Caucus has educated fellow legislators about the issues faced by Nevadans working in the hospitality industry and how legislation may affect Nevada’s large population of tourism and hospitality workers.

As you can see, I had a busy first session fighting for the residents of SD12, but I would not want it any other way. It is the honor of my lifetime to serve my neighbors and I am grateful for the opportunity. If you want to receive periodic updates from me, please fill out the form below.
