My Top 3 Priorities

  • My main priority is converting our mapping system from Auto-CAD to GIS.
  • My second priority is revamping our system for valuing mobile homes.
  • I also want to maintain the integrity of my staff through budget cuts.



I've worked for the Assessor's office for over 34 years, starting as an entry-level clerk and gaining experience in every aspect of the department.  I graduated with honors from Butte College where I received my Associates Degree in Business Administration while working full time in the department.  I received my Appraiser Certificate in August of 1990 and my Advanced Appraiser Certificate in March of 1995.  During my tenure as the Assessor, I've created a succession plan and am currently preparing the future leaders of the office for their roles.  I was able to pass three resolutions: One to increase the amount of the low value ordinance to $5,000 on escape assessments, eliminating bills under $50.  I also made it possible for Disabled Veterans to receive corrected bills for up to eight years without having to petition the Board of Supervisors.  Lastly, I was able to provide calamity relief to the taxpayers affected by the recent fires without a filed claim form.
