I am a landscape architect with over 16 years of experience working for a Bay Area city managing the design and construction of parks and trails.  My husband and I lived in Fremont for over 30 years where we raised our two boys.  While there, i was involved in the PTA serving as treasurer for sesveral years and as co-chair for Grad night and my husband was very involved with Little League as a coach, umpire and Board member.  We just moved to Livermore in June 2016 and are planning to retire here. I'm running for Director because I wanted to become involved in my new community and to use my professional expertise to help.
