Becky began her career as a social worker and counselor, where she worked closely with Utahns to strengthen families and address personal challenges.
In an effort to expand her service and advocacy for Utah families, Becky ran for the Utah House of Representatives in 2008. As a Republican legislator for ten years, she championed common-sense conservative solutions to the challenges facing Utah families. She worked to expand affordable housing options, improve Utah schools, and support clean energy opportunities across the state.
Each Saturday during her ten legislative sessions, Becky invited constituents to her home for “Bagels and Briefings” to share their concerns, answer questions, and learn about the very real struggles and opportunities in their lives. Becky earned wide respect in the legislature from both sides of the aisle. She was known as a problem-solver and received top ranks for her effectiveness at passing bills. She pushed forward with tenacity and compassion on challenging issues like health care, clean air and climate change, the economy, and education.
Becky is a proud 26-year resident of Davis County in Northern Utah. She is married to John Edwards and has four children and ten grandchildren. She recently served in Samoa with her husband as a humanitarian missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints from May 2019–January 2021.
