I'm a conservative Republican running for Congress in the 3rd District of Kansas. I served three terms in the Kansas House from 1999-2004, representing the 29th District - during which time I served as Majority Whip and was appointed as the House Insurance Committee Chairman.
Prior to my time in the Kansas House, I served as an enforcement attorney with the FAA and as a litigation atttorney with the Resolution Trust Corporation where I oversaw hundreds of property cases involving a half of dozen institutions assigned to me.
For the last five years, I served as VP of Governmental Relations with HSBC.
I graduated from Notre Dame de Sion High School and the University of Kansas. I am married to David and have two daugthers -- we live in Olathe.
