Explain the role you believe the federal government should play in addressing the cost of and access to healthcare.

As a Purple Heart recipient, and mother of two, I understand the importance of quality medical care and know first hand the struggles that so many families go through to afford it. Having worked for a local hospital network in Round Rock for five years, I understand how complex our healthcare systems are, and know it will take bipartisan efforts to accomplish real reform. I support efforts that would improve the ACA by encouraging insurers to participate in the marketplace and stabilizing the insurance market, and will fight to eliminating waste and incentivizing innovation.
