Becky is a conservative citizen activist who grew up in the 1980's Reagan era. During that time it was not unusual for American's to hear a great deal about the Cold War and to be concerned about the possibility of a nuclear war. When the Cold War ended, American entered an era of peace and prosperity. Becky got married and raised four children. For thirty years she voted regularly but otherwise did not pay much attention to what was happening in the world around her.

In 2010, with her children grown, Becky realized that the world had changed and that her beloved nation had changed with it. Conservative values had given way to an entitlement mentality and the freedoms she was born with were being eroded away by the Robin Hood tactics and the glutinous appetites of the ever expanding government. She realized that it was past time for her to get involved in the cause of liberty.

Becky became a campaign volunteer and set out to support candidates who were for limited government and a return to personal liberty and responsibility. Soon she found employment with Cor Strategies, a Chicago based company that manages communications, operations, and technology for political campaigns. Cor Strategies allowed her to fully utilize her organizational talents to help good candidates get elected to office and fully supported her other endeavors to grow, learn, and fight the good fight to protect and defend the Constitution.

Becky also became a precinct committeewoman, a Lincoln Series Fellow, an NRA member, and a staunch supporter of her second amendment rights. To that end she helped form the Illinois Gun Owners PACand worked to support liberty minded second amendment advocates. The PAC's inaugural event, Ladies, Locked 'n Loaded, was hugely successful and included firearms training for women by Jan Morgan, nationally recognized second amendment advocate and NRA certified instructor.

Becky currently makes her home in Illinois, where she continues to fight for the cause of reasonable conceal carry legislation in the only state not to recognize this constitutional right. She works to hone her shooting skills and to fight for true liberty. Becky enjoys getting together with a group of friends, who affectionately call themselves the New Inklings, to break bread and participate in stimulating conversation. Her first grandchild was born in February of 2013. Her four grown children are a source of pride and joy and Becky spends as much time with them as she can.
