Preserving Pleasanton’s small-town character has been my motivation for 30 years of community involvement. I have served vulnerable populations as a city commissioner on Pleasanton’s Human Services Commission for 11 years, worked with students at Las Positas College, and by serving on local nonprofit boards – including the board of directors for Tri-Valley REACH (Resources-Education-Activities-Community-Housing), I am currently a board member with NAMI Tri-Valley (National Alliance on Mental Illness).
I have participated on numerous budget and planning committees and task forces for the City of Pleasanton and the Pleasanton Unified School District – including the PUSD Citizens’ Committee on Debt Management. I have a lengthy and diverse record of service to Pleasanton and I am ready to apply these experiences to serving the community as a Pleasanton City Councilmember.
I am a small business owner with my husband, Nick. We have lived in Pleasanton for 30 years with our three children, who attended Pleasanton’s public schools, and graduated from California universities.
Thank you for your support!
