I have a B.A. in Family and Consumer Sciences with an emphasis in Child Development and Family Studies, and a Master’s in Education. I taught elementary school at several levels (1, 2, 3, and 5) before moving to middle school, where I have taught both 6th and 8th grade students in both math and science.  I have been in my current school for ten years.

I have been an active resident and have raised funds for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society as well as St. Baldrick’s Foundation which funds childhood cancer research.

Filosofía política

I am running because there was not a Councilmember who represented my values. Instead of waiting for someone else to jump in the race, I decided to take the journey myself. I'm running because there are many in Huntington Beach who are not having their voices heard when it comes to city services or the direction of the city, and I want to change that.

As a teacher, I saw the looks on my students' faces after the 2016 election and I knew that something must be done to protect our future. That is why I’m running.

I am at every meeting, event, rally, and information session possible because I am naturally curious and passionate about the issues our city is addressing but also believe their representatives should be present in the community. I have an open-door policy and will meet with voters and stakeholders over coffee, drinks, etc.
