I moved to Santa Rosa with my husband to be a part of the vibrant culture that this city has to offer. Santa Rosa became my home because of its true sense of community, where everyone matters. It has been my pleasure to give back as a member of the Board of Public Utilities overseeing the Santa Rosa Water Department.

As the Deputy Director for a Santa Rosa based nonprofit, I monitor government contracts and high impact programs to get families stabilized. Every day I work alongside proud Santa Rosa residents who find it increasingly challenging for them to live, work and raise a family here. The high cost of living, exacerbated by the wildfires, makes it a pivotal time for Santa Rosa’s future.

I want to see the city rebuild what we've lost, and strengthen existing communities and people. We need to create a diverse housing stock, a robust and local workforce, and active civic engagement. That is why I am ready to serve this great city.

I am committed to having an open robust dialogue about the issues and I am always looking forward for Santa Rosa. Visit or call me at (707) 962-8349. I humbly ask for your support as we make Santa Rosa a successful place for all.
