My Top 3 Priorities

  • Community Involvment - To bring more Cypress community involvemnt to local politics by holding informal Q&aAs throughout Cypress on a regular basis. I am also strongly in favor of bringing back a planning commission!
  • Pay to Play- I will not take developer donations or gifts, and I will not reward bait and switch contracts! This leaves me able to vote for what is Best for Cypress.
  • Working Families - I want to ensure that familes have the opportunity to have a well paying career in Cypress so they can also live here.

I moved to Cypress 13 years ago to begin a blended family with my husband, a longtime resident.  I am a mother who transitioned from helping in the classroom to helping in the community.

I currently act as secretary on the executive board of the Woman’s Club of Cypress.  I served on the Recreation Commission until beginning my run for city council. While on the commission, I worked on amending policy, overview of department budget, opening a new park, and monthly facility reporting.

As your council member, I will be working for you. Because I believe accessibility is important, I will have open hours and hold monthly Q&As throughout Cypress. I look forward to building a city inclusive  of all Cypress residents.

I will not be beholden to any developers, and I will not reward bait and switch contracts.

Issues important to me include:

  • traffic
  • over-development
  • environmental impacts
  • working families
  • safe schools accessible to all
  • community safety
  • a sensible, balanced city budget
  • government transparency


Together we can bring Cypress Back to Basics with responsive, caring, and accountable leadership.

I would be honored to have your vote.
