Focused on People not PACs

Transparency is important in government. I encourage you to review, compare, and contrast both my opponent’s and my campaign donation sources that are available on the Oklahoma Ethics Commission website.

As of 10/29/2018, I have only received nominal funds related to education(AFT $250 and OEA $250) and political party (Canadian County Democrats $350). My opponent has accepted $19,000 in Special Interest PAC funds.

I was raised with Oklahoma values and believe that the primary responsibility of an elected official is to represent "we the people," not special interests. My campaign has been supported by everyday people like you.

I don’t have time for the “strings attached” system. I’m focused on achieving a high quality of life, economic success and stability, and a bright future for our children.

Get to Know Me!

I am a lifelong native Oklahoman and House District 47 resident for 15 years.  Oklahoma is my home.

I've been married to my husband Jeramy Carnes for 19 years and have two daughters who attend public school.  I teach Art at Mustang High School and am very active in our community.  My Christian faith was nurtured at Northwest Christian Church, Disciples of Christ (OKC) and we currently attend United Methodist Church of the Good Shepherd (UMCGS).

I am a proven leader.  I have the management, collaboration, and problem solving experience of a veteran teacher.  I am an experienced educator, right down to the "apple core."  I've been locally, regionally, and nationally recognized professionally for my ability to bring people together and achieve exceptional results.  My 20 years experience has developed me into a capable leader who collaborates, actively listens, and applies common sense to solve complex problems.

My campaign has been supported by everyday people like you.  I am focused on achieving the American dream for all: a high quality of life, economic success and stability, and a bright future for our children.  We can't afford more of the same.  The Status Quo Must Go!

I need your vote to focus on our future at the Oklahoma Capitol.  Your vote is precious and should not be given lightly.  If elected, you will get an honest, trustworthy, passionate, hardworking, and dedicated advocate in me.  Please explore my website as you're researching and preparing to vote in the upcoming General Election on November 6th:

I'm glad you've learned little bit more about me and look forward to meeting you at one of my upcoming events in our community!  There are many ways to contact me, including a good old fashioned phone call (405-806-0567).
