Sen. Schupp served six years on the Ladue School Board, including 2 terms as President, beginning in 2000. In 2007 she was elected to the Creve Coeur City Council. From 2009 to 2014 Sen. Schupp served as State Representative for the 82nd House District, which later became the 88th District after redistricting. After teaching in public elementary schools in California and Missouri, Sen. Schupp spent two decades as a small business executive.
In the State House, Schupp championed legislation which made workplace environments smoke-free; protected children in unlicensed daycare settings, allowed seniors the opportunity to age in their own homes and continually fought legislation that shifted tax burdens onto the middle class. Her commitment to her constituents never wavered as she backed bills protecting our youngest and oldest citizens, supported veterans, promoted quality education, expanded health care access and created jobs and opportunities for economic growth.
Borne out of her passion to honor the service and sacrifice of our military veterans, Sen. Schupp founded the Missouri Veterans History Project, a nonprofit organization, which saved taxpayers money by replacing a previous state-funded program. More than 1000 veterans’ experiences have been videotaped and archived at the Library of Congress and the State Historical Society of Missouri to ensure that the stories of Missouri veterans are never forgotten.

Born and raised in the St. Louis area, Sen. Schupp attended Parkway North High School and went on to become a graduate of the University of Missouri-Columbia. She then earned a teaching certificate from the University of Missouri-St. Louis. She continues to remain involved in her community as a volunteer and board member for numerous nonprofit groups.
