I am a long time artist and silversmith who has made a living in the healthcare industry as an occupational therapist and patient advocate. My first presidential vote went to Ronald Reagan for his second term, and I have recently been motivated to participate actively to change the political landscape by becoming a PC for my legislative district in Maricopa County, Arizona. Cold Warrior and the stellar group of involved patriots on the internet, first met through RedState, and now branching out all over the place, showed the way and provided the tools to help take back our country one PC at a time. I hope to learn to contribute more than financial support in this lifetime endeavor. Seeing as I grew up in the SF Bay area during the time that so many were going so liberal, but followed the very conservative pattern of my parents instead, I have a lot to thank them for.
