My mother served in the U.S. Army for twenty years. I learned so much about service, sacrifice, and dedication to country through her. After all our Servicemembers and Veterans have done for us, we must have their backs.
 
That’s why our team is here to help local Veterans however we can. Here you can learn how we can help and find resources that are available.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

How We Can Help

 
My local offices in Overland Park and Kansas City are dedicated to helping Kansans fix problems they may be having with the federal government.
 
A big part of that is helping Veterans in our community. We may be able to help with:
 
Recovering backlogged VA benefits.
Issues with VA health care.
Accessing GI education benefits.
Navigating small business programs for Veterans.
Obtaining service medals.
Issues with the Department of Defense.
And much more!
 
We’ll do whatever we can to help. I’m also proud to have a Wounded Warrior Fellow as part of my team to serve Kansas Veterans.
