I represent voters of the 76th Assembly District on the San Diego County Central Committee.

Bill to attend Mira Costa Community College and California State University San Marcos, and obtained: a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a focus towards the Service Sector, a Social Science Credential with a Cross-Cultural Language and Academic Development focus, and a Master of Arts in Education: Teaching, Learning, and Leadership degree. Post College career, I became a Social Science Secondary Educator. In my decade of teaching, I mentored students to establish a Gay Straight Alliance (GSA) in a North San Diego County School. I founded and established the Sanctuary Project Veterans. This advocacy works led me to become a member of The White House Six, The LGBT Civil Rights Campaign for the Repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. As a Veteran’s Advocate, I was a member of The California Department of Veterans Affairs Workgroup for the 1st LGBT Veteran's Leadership Conference that focused on five key issues impacted Veterans: Homelessness, Healthcare, Employment, Education, and Legal.
