My Top 3 Priorities

  • Community Safety
  • Smart Growth
  • Community Choice Energy



I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and a Master’s in Organizational Management. As a financial consultant, I help my clients with accounting, budgeting, projections, compliance, payroll and HR management. 

My professional experience and years of community service are reasons to support my campaign. We need fresh eyes, new ideas and better communication between our city government and our residents. I am not a career politician; I am a resident who wants our community to thrive while maintaining the values of Vista. I am running to represent Vista, and this means putting people first. My campaign is people-powered, and I am not beholden to any corporations or special interest groups, only to you, the voter.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

First, my vision is to promote a people-first platform where we listen to our constituents, have full transparency in local government, and community members are heard before decisions are made. Second, important to me is ensuring financial stability of our city with responsible spending to support infrastructure and our socio-economic needs. Third, I actively support bringing a costeffective and a sustainable climate action plan to reduce our greenhouse emissions and transition to 100% renewable energy by 2035.
