Age: 41

I am honored to run for Carson City Council. My primary purpose is to implement policy improvements that will enhance the lives of residents, create positive working environments for city employees, and increase community among our visitors and neighbors.

My key issues are:

- safety and policing - particularly in neighborhoods with heightened criminal activity,
- balancing the city's budget while retaining accessibility to services for low-income families, and,
- ensuring that every act of City Council leads to the betterment of the city.

Local government should be reflective of and receptive to all of the people it serves, transparent, open to all, and accountable to its taxpayers (residents, businesses, and visitors). My goal is to ensure that the City of Carson meets these standards and more!

I have over 20 years experience in nonprofit and community advocacy work. I have 2 Bachelors and a Masters from USC, as well as a Doctorate in Organizational Leadership from Pepperdine University. I have been an active volunteer in Carson for over a decade and regularly engage with local government on behalf of our community. I absolutely love our city and respectfully ask for your vote and partnership.
