We’re proud to welcome her to Wisconsin’s 7th Congressional District race. Tricia was born and raised in Wausau. She is a first generation college graduate who also went on to graduate law school  As a farmer’s granddaughter with blue collar roots and single parent of one, she understands the issues that matter here in the 7th CD.

In 2013, Tricia was elected to serve her People, the Ho-Chunk Nation Supreme Court. She currently serves her second elected term. In 2018, she was elected to the Wausau School Board.
