Heather is running for State Assembly to take on those who are currently doing so much harm to people across Wisconsin. She will use her position in a safe progressive seat to help flip seats to blue in other parts of the state and to give some balance to the legislature.
Heather has been a leader in her community, working in the Capitol, with the school board, with her neighborhood association, with the city council, and with advocacy groups on environmental, equity, and gun violence prevention issues. As a local Legislative Lead for Moms Demand Action she has fought against bad gun legislation in Wisconsin and advocated tirelessly for common-sense gun laws that, if enacted, would save lives. Heather has also used her own personal story to advocate for access to healthcare and for survivors of sexual assault. She lives in Madison, WI with her husband and two children.
