It's time for fresh and innovative leadership at DSRSD and I believe that I am the right person to help ensure that customers are receiving top-quality service while we make smart investments in operations and critical water and wastewater infrastructure revitalization.

I’m a volunteer Director at of one of the largest social service organizations serving Contra Costa and Alameda Counties. I've led the implementation of advanced financial controls and was added to the audit committee.

Previously, I was the founding Executive Director of MedShare in California - one of the highest rated charities in the U.S.

I have extensive board leadership experience that distinquishes my candidacy. Over 9+years I've effectively collaborated with staffs in 3 organizations to ensure that strategic goals are being met, while delivering excellent service to customers.

Education: BA in Economics from the University of California, Irvine and advanced courses at University of Pennsylvania -Wharton Business School in strategic planning.

Honored to have received the prestigious Environmental Innovation Award for the Bay Area, as well as numerous Environmental Reuse Awards from the State.

As a DSRSD customer for 20 years, I have great respect for the good services they deliver to our Tri-Valley community and look forward to contributing my experiences and talents.
