I hold a BA, MA in Education and Counseling with a Pupil Personnel Services Credential from the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing. For the past twenty five years, I have consistently worked with schools, social service agencies and community groups in assuring that children and families receive adequate physical, mental health services, and support structures that positively affect their academic achievement. As a Member of the Hawthorne School District Board of Trustees for these past eleven years, we have reduced class size, increased academic achievement, created three academies (S.T.E.M., fine arts, and businesses), and increased parent involvement in our schools through the creations of parent academies. Currently, I serve as the president and CEO of the Moneta Gardens Improvement, Inc. (MGI), a non-profit organization serving the families and children of the Hawthorne. In addition, I am also the Executive Director  for the South Bay Universal Child Development Center-“The Castle,” which is also a non-profit organization dedicated to provide early childhood education to the children of Hawthorne free of charge. 

As a leader of numerous organizations in Hawthorne, I’ve gladly enjoyed the privilege and opportunity to dedicate my time to promoting safety, education, community development, and social equity in the City of Hawthorne. I have worked in conjunction with our city officials and civic organizations to make life better for our entire community. I have helped our police department and the first responders maintain their level of services.

Filosofía política

In the last two decades, I’ve dedicated my time to promoting safety, education, community development, and social equity in the City of Hawthorne.  I firmly believe that investing in all of the aspects of the community will produce a vibrant future for generations to come.  Serving Hawthorne through the city council will offer me a wealth of opportunities to advance our city and demonstrate that Hawthorne really is the “City of Good Neighbors.”  As a community organizer, educator, counselor, volunteer and business executive, I look forward to contributing to the efforts that propel our city into the future. 

I would bring my diverse knowledge and understanding of programs related to federal, state, county and local entities. My broad knowledge and expertise in all aspects of business management and development can offer the council and city staff an advantage in vital negotiations for new business development plans.  My involvement in many different service clubs and organizations dedicated to the welfare of Hawthorne’s citizens has exposed me to the dynamics of our diverse community.  I have learned to identify and address individual and collective needs through the Hawthorne Presidents Council, the Lions Club, the Hawthorne Moose Lodge, PTAs, and other civic groups. 

I am running because Hawthorne needs a new path free of corruption and self-interest. I am a Champion of Integrity. I fight for everyone in our city: like our senior citizens whom most live on a fixed budget and must fight to make ends meet; our youth who need more academic enrichment programs to help mold them into productive citizens; family breadwinners whose priority is to be able to raise their children safely; our fearless and brave veterans who served our country; and our homeless who require the basic needs.
