Best equipped to deliver change, foster innovation, and achieve a more equitable County.

I am a community-centered leader with 15 years of experience. I started my career as a social entrepreneur, giving me insight into the experience of small businesses and startups. Since then I have served on boards, taught at the college level, and been in leadership at a Fortune 500 company, earning me expertise in cross-sector partnerships and complex organizations accountable to a wide range of people.

I’m running to increase visibility, transparency, and accountability; to create new pathways for community engagement; and to advance equity across the County.

We deserve vibrant communities—we must ensure affordable housing and prevent homelessness, strengthen child welfare and protection services, increase community wealth and quality of life, and prioritize restorative criminal justice reform.
