My Resume

Jan 2023 - Present
Representative HD 11

Elected in November 2022 to serve in the Michigan House of Representatives 102nd Legislature.

For the first time in 40 years, Democrats have majority representation in State government. I'm proud to be a part of that change, and to work with my colleagues on passing into law legislation that is fair, right, and just.

In 2023, I sponsored 10 bills and co-sponsored 87 bills which were signed into law; held over 50 community conversations (coffee hours and "iced tea and talk") and participated in local events; and "brought home" $11 million to House District 11. My committee attendance record was 92% and my session attendance record was 99%.

I serve on the policy committees for Agriculture (Majority Vice Chair), Local Government and Finance, Higher Education, and Natural Resources/Environment/Tourism/Outdoor Recreation.

I'm a member of the following Caucuses: Autism; Detroit; Disability; Environmental Justice; Firearms & Violence Prevention; Hispanic/Latino; Labor; Municipal; Poverty & Homelessness; and Progressive Women.


I was recently appointed to the National Hispanic Caucus of State Legislators 2024 -2025 Executive Committee as one of four representing midwestern states.
