Representing District 44 In The North Dakota House

Karla Rose Hanson

It is my great honor to represent District 44 in the North Dakota House of Representatives.

I aim to be a voice for people who aren't always heard at the legislature and to ensure working families are our state's priority.  My goal is to build on our state's economic success while ensuring we have an economy that works for everyone. Read more about my legislative priorities.

I grew up in North Dakota and earned my degree from North Dakota State University. I spent 13 years at Microsoft and Great Plains Software in Fargo before starting my own corporate communications business in 2011.

Before my neighbors elected me to the North Dakota House in 2016, I was a grassroots advocate for privacy in health care and worked on the campaign that defeated the extreme personhood measure in 2014.

When I'm not doing legislative work or helping my clients, you can find me walking our dog Franklin around the neighborhood, working in my garden, or making quilts in my sewing room. 

My husband, Shawn, and I are raising our two sons in our beautiful 1929 home. We love living on the north side!
