Occupation: Government Affairs Professional

Transparency and citizen engagement are the lifeblood of a thriving community. Transportation impacts, residential codes, public safety and budget deficits require community based solutions from forward-looking leaders committed to bringing together disparate voices.

My experience in government affairs – finding common sense solutions among government, business and private interests -  has earned me a no-nonsense, get it done reputation.  I am excited for the opportunity to bring my experience and skills to City Council.  

Since moving here to raise my family I have dedicated myself to public service.  I have chaired MI Arts Council, served on CMIPS, MIPA and Wester Mercer Elementary boards, MI District PTA Advocacy Council and been a member at large for the MIFC Soccer Association.

I ask for your vote.

Endorsed by: Former Mayor Fred Jarrett, Mayor Bruce Bassett Councilmember Debbie Bertlin Rep. Tana Senn, Former Chamber Exec Terry Moreman and many more.
