Nurse, Mom & Senator
I am a lifelong Alaskan. My father flew in World War II and then as a captain for Wien Airlines. My mother graduated from law school after raising her 4 children; she went on to be admitted to the Alaska Bar, as well as the US Supreme Court. She spent the rest of her productive years doing pro bono legal work for seniors. I met my husband Richard in college and returned to Alaska with a nursing degree. We raised our family in the home Rich built on the Anchorage Hillside. I am an advanced nurse practitioner, and provided care in trauma care wards, village schools, and homeless shelters. Serving Alaskans of all walks of life is my passion. My Values >
My Commitment to You
Public service is a sacred trust – I serve you, the voters, and no one else.
You have my commitment to uphold the Alaska's Constitution, to act only in Alaskans best interests, to serve ethically, and communicate clearly about.
The opportunity to represent you would be a privilege, and I would commit to honoring your trust in me.
Delivering Conservative Results
Some legislators are provocative. I'm more interested in being productive. I'm proud to work with my fellow Senators, achieving real budget cuts, blocking government overreach, and reforming government by:
- Repealing and Replacing SB91, and getting tougher on Alaska's worst offenders
- Voting consistently to lower the state budget
- Overhauling Alaska's Medicaid program for the first time in the state's history
- Passing bills increasing access and decreasing cost to healthcare throughout Alaska, particularly to the undeserved
- Supporting, and defending rational tax policies encouraging the private sector to invest and succeed in Alaska
Cathy In The News
Alaska's been home my home from day 1. After a career as a nurse practitioner serving many of Alaska's most vulnerable people, I entered public service because I believe Alaska's future can be brighter than ever, if we make the right choices in Juneau.
I am a lifelong conservative, pro-life, and pro-business. I've consistently been endorsed by the National Rifle Association for my defense of our Second Amendment rights. Honesty, transparency and hard work are the keys to success for a state as well as an individual. I believe Alaska does best when we focus government on defined tasks and let creative Alaskans invent the future.
