Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • Maintain financial stability, the cornerstone for our other aspirations. We face a few difficult years. My business experience managing budgets and projects prepares me to help balance the budget.
  • Foster our very special quality of life. I would work to maintain our home town character as we change to ensure our city thrives.
  • Protect the natural beauty that sets us apart. I would work to ensure that the current and future natural beauty of Pacific is protected and nurtured.

I was born in rural New York State and raised mostly around Washington, DC.

I began my career as a computer programmer and worked for 20 years in product development for firms that sold computer hardware and software to large businesses and government. I spent the next 20 years in information technology helping companies use computer systems to optimize business operations and customer service.

I spent most of my career in management roles and held the title of Chief Information Officer at Informix Software, Quantum, and Applera corporations. As a manager and executive I learned to optimize financial and other resources. I also led teams and gained significant experience in problem solving, negotiation, and management of change. I thoroughly understand the importance of grounding actions in values within a vision for the future.

I became a transplanted Californian when my first employer relocated our group from St. Paul Minnesota to the San Francisco Bay Area to take advantage of the early days of Silicon Valley.

​I have served on the boards of several nonprofit organizations and currently serve on the board of the Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History Foundation.

My husband, Jack and I married in 1975 and have one son who lives in Southern California

Creencias poliza

Filosofía política

I am running for city council in Pacific Grove for love of the community, not for any specific issue. My background prepares me to look at all sides of the issues and balance competing interests of quality, cost, and capability. I value inclusiveness, respect, and connection with each other and nature. I also value  science and the thoughtful use of information to govern what we do.
