I am a public servant at heart. I have launched organizations, led successful campaigns, and advocated on behalf of a handful of sociopolitical topics pertaining to California state legislation. I have climbed the public education ladder, if you will, to earning a degree from the premier public institution in the entire world; the University of California, Berkeley. My degree in Political Science has enabled me to pave a path to law school to study Constitutional Law and influence state and federal legislation in my distant future. I aspire to run for public office on the national stage, and I see myself doing wonderful work representing our beautiful County. 

Political Beliefs

I am a passionate Democrat, and I live a moderately-progressive lifestyle that enables me to share core values with many of you. I support an increase in minimum wage, a woman's right to choose, passing gun control and education reform legislation, and further developing the Affordable Care Act to accomodate all citizens, not only a majority of low-income families. I believe Comprehensive Immigration Reform is vital to the success of our nation and to our platform for diversity. Enabling paid sick/family leave and investing in education as opposed to incarceration are two additional liberal stances of mine.
