I am a business executive and community advocate. I hold advanced degrees in law and organization development. While this experience may guide me as a Council Member, it is not the most important. What matters most is that I am a long-time committed resident. I will put the people who live in our community first.


Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

Del Rey Oaks is progressing towards financial viability. I will work with you and our city leaders to create a sustainable plan for our future.  

I want our community to be part of that plan. I am committed to keeping you informed about what is happening and why. I will ask myself and you, “Will it benefit our residents, businesses and visitors to our community?” My decision-making will be clear, open, and inclusive.

I know you care about the future of Del Rey Oaks. Let’s shape that future together. Thank you for taking the first step with your vote.
