My Top 3 Priorities

  • Protect Taxpayers
  • My leadership of this office and its staff will focus on financial responsibility and integrity as well as utilizing technology to streamline processes. County employees deserve leadership that is responsive and focused on results.
  • I will work respectfully and collaboratively with each department in the county, but will also work independently of them, ensuring that decisions and financial processes make sense and are in the best interest of the tax payers.



  • Education: Masters degree in Public Administration with option in Public Sector Managment and Leadership. Bachelors degree in Business Administration with an option in Accounting Information Systems. Associates degree in Business Administration.
  • More than 25 years working in financial administration and accounting.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

I work in a non-partisan office. My political philosophy for the Auditor-Controller's office is that every tax payer dollar is important regardless of party preference. We are civil servants that take the oath to serve the citizens. We are stewards of every tax dollar.
