Dear Voter,

Thank you for your efforts to become an informed voter and for visiting the Destefani for Ohio Website! I would like to take the opportunity to formally introduce myself as an Ohio 10th District State Senate candidate to possibly fill the position that will be vacated, as Senator Bob Hackett is term-limited after completing his second term. As a servant leader, I have a long-standing interest in Serving our Country, having been a United States Air Force Officer, a Technology-Focused Business Leader, and a three-time elected Sugarcreek Township Trustee, representing about 10,000 residents in Greene County, where my husband and I have resided for 22 years.


As a highly involved Republican Party member, I am committed to furthering Constitutional values. I currently serve on the Greene County Republican Party Executive Board as a County Coordinator. It is a privilege to be an elected Greene County Precinct 152 Captain, to have participated as a poll worker, experiencing the full voting process firsthand, and to be an Institute on the Constitution, An American View of Law, Liberty, and Government graduate. I am an alumnus of the prestigious and highly competitive JoAnn Davidson Ohio Leadership Institute. I belong to five regional Clark, Clinton, and Greene County Republican Clubs. It was a true honor to be inducted into the 2023 Greene County Women’s Hall of Fame and the 2023 Ohio Veteran’s Hall of Fame for outstanding Community Service efforts.


I have been a conservative pro-life, pro-family, and pro-second amendment Republican my entire life. Faith, Family, and Freedom are American values that I have dedicated my life to upholding. As a Mother and Grandmother, I understand the lasting consequences of legislation Ohio enacts and its impact on future generations. My husband, Chuck, retired as an Air Force Colonel in 2021 and currently owns an Information Technology company. We have been married for over 32 years, and both feel strongly about the importance of family values. I am a Gulf War Veteran and have served at various locations worldwide. Today, I serve as the Director of Federal Programs for a Government Contractor, Flairsoft LLC, which supports Wright-Patterson Air Force Base and Springfield Air National Guard Base personnel. My husband and I have both maintained our Ohio Conceal Carry Licenses for over ten years.   


I have gained the support and endorsements of both Ohio House Representatives Bill Dean and Brian Lampton, the majority of Greene County Elected Officials, and other community leaders in Clark and Clinton Counties. I have attached a Political Resume highlighting some of my credentials and accomplishments, my endorsement list, and a few flyers. I would appreciate your support and vote for the Ohio Republican Primary on March 19, 2024. Thank you for your consideration!
