I am the proud mother of two and the grandmother of four beautiful granddaughters. I have been happily married for thirty-seven years. We have owned our home on Harding St. for 14 years, but have lived in North Salinas for almost thirty-five, where I ran my own business, volunteered and been community involved. My hobbies include painting, poetry and spending lots of time with family and friends. We are avid 4x4 enthusiasts but enjoy spending time barbecuing in the backyard as well. 

As the Executive Director of the Central Coast Builders Association, I work to improve laws and regulations that are harmful to businesses and the community. Representing both union and merit shops, I work to uphold the principles of ethics and fair industry practices through education and advocacy. 

I have experience with budgeting and strategic planning.  I am accustomed to collaborating with large groups of people toward a common goal. 

As your City Councilmember, I have worked to obtain monies for sidewalk and road repair, traffic calming and homeless advocacy. We were successful in obtaining over 8 million to fund a new Community Center in the heart of District 5. I have worked to obtain money for every park in our district and that work will start soon. 

We are working hard on affordable housing options along with affordable by design as well. Public safety is important to me, I plan to work with both fire and police on actions to take to make the city a more secure place for your family to live and play.

I am excited to stay on as your representative to be able to see these projects through to fruition. I want to ensure that the city does not back track on promises made. 

I want to fight for our district and make the city a better place to live, work and raise our families.

I am working with you to make a better Salinas.
