You deserve a leader that will listen to you, your ideas, concerns and be proactive in their decision making. We have to address homelessness, safety and economic development in our City.  Being the Executive Director of Downtown Auburn Cooperative has given me time to deal with the issues of Auburn. I was raised in Auburn and have 5 generations that have also lived in Auburn.  You deserve a leader that knows Auburn and understands Auburn . I am  on the Lions Club board and I partner with the VFW post 1831. Civic groups are important to me .As your council member, I will always work hard to make Auburn a better place with your help. I am always there to represent the people and take your concerns to city hall, to be a voice of the people. Let's make Auburn a better place..


I humbly ask for your vote.

I am running for office because I believe safe streets and clean streets are possible.

I have a huge passion for empowering people. I have dedicated my career to helping as many people as a I can to “not have to learn the hard way” like I did.

I want to bring my lived experiences to city council to create solutions for positive outcomes. We’re facing tough issues affecting all of us. Substance abuse, homelessness, and crime threaten our neighborhoods. Just like you, I’m frustrated at the lack of progress the council has made. I want my family and all Auburn residents to feel safe. I’ll advocate for our police to ensure they have the resources they need, and ensure we have an effective, compassionate approach to those in a crisis. I’ll support a better tax structure to help small businesses and tenants, and build partnerships to make real progress!
