As a working mother of two young children, I understand the importance of accessible childcare and am passionate about pursuing policies to make childcare more attainable for Iowa’s families. The cost of childcare is a major barrier to women entering the workforce, an issue that has been exacerbated amid the COVID-19 pandemic. I will work to reverse this trend by opening up childcare choices for families in Iowa, emphasizing the massive workforce benefits, and expanding tax-favored options on how to pay for childcare services.
