MEET SCHUYLER 

Ensuring the Good Life for all Nebraskans

Schuyler Windham. Lawyer. Wife. Guardian to a teenager.

She values her family, community, & country.

 

Schuyler Windham (née Geery-Zink) is a lawyer and entrepreneur from Lincoln, Nebraska. She plays the banjo in a local band and writes fiction books. She loves her home state of Nebraska and wants to give back to the community that raised her by running for the Nebraska State Legislature LD 26. She lives in Northeast Lincoln with her husband, Daniel, and their teenage nephew who attends Lincoln Northeast High School (Go Rockets!).

 

Schuyler will bring passion, extensive public policy experience, and personal and professional integrity to the Unicameral to make real change.

 

Schuyler is uniquely qualified to represent you: she has drafted successful legislation, testified at the Unicameral, and brought everyday Nebraskans to meet with Nebraska State Senators to tell our stories for policy change.
