My Top 3 Priorities

  • FULLY FUNDING PUBLIC SCHOOLS: I am a mother and former PTA leader strongly supported by local teachers because I am committed to fully funding our public schools, expanding access to after-school programs, and making community college tuition free.
  • STRONG NEIGHBORHOODS: I will strengthen our unique communities, by maintaining fast emergency response times, ensuring funding for safe roads for all users, incentivizing affordable housing and supporting law enforcement policies that increase trust.
  • PROTECTING OUR ENVIRONMENT: Earlier this year, I helped create the most ambitions climate action plan in San Diego County. I will fight to protect our coastlines, invest in renewable energy technologies, and keep our air and water clean.

Biography

I am a City Councilmember, former PTA leader, businesswoman, mother, and third-generation North County resident. Prior to my election to the Encinitas City Council in 2016, I served as a member of the city’s planning commission. Professionally, I have worked for global Fortune 500 companies, non-profits, and higher education institutions. In response to my daughter’s struggle with sensory process disorder, I started a business designing sensory-friendly clothing for little girls. 

I earned an A.B.D. in Political Science and a M.A. in International Studies from Claremont Graduate University Institute of Politics and Policy. I received my B.A. in Political Science from the University of California, Berkeley. 

My husband and I are the proud parents of two children.
