I am a wife and mom. Mark and I have been married since 2005. Our two sons, Micah and Jonah, have taught me love, patience, and pure joy. As a mother, it's very easy for me to be Pro-Life. I strongly believe all life is important and valuable. I choose to protect all life - the unborn, the disabled, the elderly, all lives that God created. The value of life does not depend on looks or abilities - there is innate dignity in every human life.
I am very blessed to have the support of my family, including my grandparents, Frank & Bernice Deppe. They are great examples of community leadership and stewardship. My grandpa is a WWII Veteran with an incredible work ethic and entrepreneurial mind. My grandma may be little, but she is a mighty rock who raised four children to become successful adults.
I am passionate about bringing people together and collaborating. Since being elected to the Board of Commissioners in 2014, my colleagues and I have been able to accomplish several things to improve Kent County and positively impact our community with the help from people in both the public and private sectors. I am a firm believer in bringing all voices to the table and working together for the best possible outcomes.
