Dear Friend, 

This week I was busy traveling the 115th district meeting with my constituents. Take a look at what I was up to!

Supporting Youth Agriculture and Ag Education!
I had a great time Wednesday at the Jefferson County 4H Auction. This year, my husband Rick made it very clear that I should not come home with yet another goat. So, I bought 3 rabbits from Miss Tinsley and a hog from Miss Marlow, though no livestock came home with us.

Jefferson County is home to world class agricultural education opportunities and some of the most dedicated 4H and FFA students in the world! I am blessed to represent you!

NubAbility Sports Camp in DuQuoin
I was so honored to be invited to attend and say a few words at the opening ceremony of the NubAbility Sports Camp in DuQuoin on Friday.

The camp gives kids who are “limb different,” a chance to learn and compete in their chosen sport.

I met some very special new friends and had the chance to catch up with folks I’ve seen every year at NubAbility Camp. Thank you all for making me feel welcome and have fun!

There are 2 rules at the NubAbility Camp:

1. Leave all excuses outside the gate;

2. If you say I can’t you do 50 push ups.

Please take the time to visit their website and check out this amazing organization @

Carbondale WalMart Renovates and Donates
I had a great time visiting with employees at Walmart in Carbondale as they celebrated the store finalizing renovations. I enjoyed the ribbon cutting and talking with the folks that make Walmart work!

Walmart has also generously donated $20,000 to the upcoming Veterans’ Honor Flight and $1,000 to Carbondale’s Thomas Elementary School. Thank you to Walmart for your generosity and service to the community!

My office in Mt. Vernon is open Tuesday through Friday and my office in Murphysboro is open Monday through Wednesday and Fridays from 8:30 AM to 4:00 PM. You can also contact me directly through the Contact Form on my website at or at
