  • Ensure customers pay the lowest water rates practical while maintaining the District's water and wastewater infrastructure
  • Improve ETWD's water reliability against droughts by emphasizing recycled water supplies and conservation strategies

Member and Volunteer, Executive Women's Golf Association (1998–current)


I am a Licensed Professional Engineer with graduate management education and over 35+ years working in increasingly responsible industry positions in engineering, executive management, business and strategic planning and financial systems and controls. I have been putting my prior business knowledge to help address many public issues.

 In 2015, the OC Register recognized me as One of OC’s Most Influential Community Leaders. I served six years on the Laguna Woods Village (LWV) Third Mutual HOA, three of which as Treasurer with a $35 million budget.  I was also President of the LWV Golden Rain Foundation with a combined budget of $100 million and led the community to change its governance model to that of a self-governed municipality. 

Creencias poliza

Filosofía política

Water is a natural resource we often take for granted.  However, in Southern California, this resource must be carefully managed for the benefit of all. This requires board members who have good technical and financial backgrounds and have demonstrated the capability to provide leadership through challenging issues when there are many stakeholders who have different opinions on what should be done.


As the recent (alternative) Public member of the Orange County Local Agency Formulation Commission, I have experience and, more importantly, a clearer understanding of the critical issues affecting both local and statewide water delivery systems. As a commission member, I was a strong advocate for local control of public land and utilties.
