As a longtime resident, volunteer, mother, veteran, police officer spouse, and former KSD employee, I know Kent’s challenges and have a proven record of advocating for our city’s residents. 


As your councilmember, I played a key role in transforming our police and parks departments. Kent PD is now fully staffed for the first time in years. KPD now has co-responders, connecting those in need with resources, and new recruits go through a Community Immersion Program. Council's also enacted new drug and camping laws. As a member of the Regional Law, Safety, and Justice Committee, I continue to address public safety in Kent. With renewed investments, our parks are winning awards and bringing vitality to our city. We now have a hugely popular space-themed park downtown. Van Doren’s Landing Park combines renovated recreation with wildlife habitat restoration, and board game-themed West Fenwick Park is a regional destination for parents.


Additionally, as a member of Kent’s Human Services Commission, I will continue investing in those in need, ensuring they receive mental health treatment, shelter, employment training, and basic needs support. 

Let’s continue moving Kent forward, ensuring Kent is the place you want to live, work, and play. Thank you for your vote!

Education: California State University Hayward: Major: Computer Science, Minor: Mathematics
Occupation: Customer Service Representative for a local multi-million-dollar business

I am not a politician and will not provide a cookie cutter statement.  I am a customer service professional and have been one for more than 25 years.  This makes me the most qualified candidate for this position.  Why?  It’s my job to listen and formulate solutions to resolve matters that trouble my customers.  If elected, then you would all be my ‘customers’.


Unlike others, I can’t tell you what I’m going to do for Kent.  It’s because that depends on what you want me to do for Kent.  I would like to reduce the number of homeless people in the city, as opposed to pushing them down by the river.  I would like to examine police efficiency to see if there is a better way to provide police coverage.  I also would like to see the revolving door of the criminal justice system welded shut.  That is what I want, but my desires are secondary to yours. 


Elect me to office, tell me what you want, and I will advocate for your stated priorities.  Politicians have long since stopped listening to the people, but I am not a politician.
