TLR PAC is proud to present her with TLR's Civil Justice Leadership Award." TLR PAC’s Civil Justice Leadership Award is presented to lawmakers who take a stand in support of the model lawsuit reforms that are boosting the Texas economy, creating jobs and increasing access to doctors and health care in every community.

She is a member of the House Judiciary and Civil Jurisprudence Committee, the Defense and Veterans Affairs Committee and the Local and Consent Calendars Committee. She is the former Executive Director of Bay Area Citizens Against Lawsuit Abuse where she was an outspoken advocate of lawsuit reform.
