I’m a former State Representative, and a health care finance professional. But at my core, I’m motivated by making our community and world better. I currently sit on the boards of OutFront Minnesota and Minnesotans United for All Families PAC, and take pride in the work I’ve done in the community.

I’ve lived in Minnesota (and Hennepin County District 3) for 15 years. My husband Bart Cannon is a middle school English teacher in the Osseo School District, and I’m a proud stepmom to Bart’s two fabulous daughters, Mia and Ellie. We live in Uptown.

I know there is a place for compassionate, smart activism on the County Board. No elected body has more immediate impact on the opportunity gap and social safety net than the County Board – and with a $1.8 billion budget, Hennepin County has both tremendous resources and enormous responsibility to improve opportunity for all.

That is why I’m running. To find out more about my values and my background, click here. To find out more about my experience, click here.
