My Top 3 Priorities

  • A CHAMPION FOR REEDLEY COLLEGE: Reedley College is over overlooked in favor of more urban areas when it comes to resources. I will be a strong steward of your local funds ensuring that every penny is spent wisely & efficiently.
  • CAREER TECHNICAL EDUCATION: I will work to ensure critical classes are available to prepare our students for jobs in the thriving agriculture sector, the healthcare industry, public safety & emerging opportunities in technology.
  • COLLEGE ACCESSABILITY: I will create greater accessibility to ensure equal opportunity for all students to attend & succeed in college. No one should fall through the cracks due to transportation or lack of available courses.



I was born in Fresno and raised in rural Fresno County.  I am a graduate of Selma Unified School District and received a B.A from Carleton College in Minnesota.  I know the power of a great education.  My eduation allowed me to become the first in my family to work for one of the most recognized names in the financial sector.  A farm girl at heart, I left that job and returned home to make our community stronger by sharing what I learned.  I run my own business helping local entitites have stronger operations that build capacity.  I also have a long history of volunteerism in schools and community organizations.  I have raised funds for higher education forums and leadership conferences for parents and students.


With your vote, as Trustee, I'll bring valley values and business sense to the Community College district.  I'll help our kids become the next generation of leaders in agriculture, firefighting, law enforcement, nursing and emerging industries.  I'll be a champion for our community, our faculty and our students.


I will help ensure that we get more resources to improve our facilities, expand access to an increasing array of courses, enhance student success and increase the transfer rate to make students' dreams possible.

I will be a strong steward of your funds ensuring that every penny is spent wisely, and efficiently.  

I hope to earn your vote!
