We need a leader that truly represents the residents of Sammamish.  My civic leadership with the Sammamish Kiwanis, a city human services commission, and homeowners’ associations have taught me to balance community priorities.  I will constantly reach out for citizen input from our diverse population to actively work what matters and reinforce a strong sense of community.


Sammamish is challenged by their growing traffic problem with infrastructure falling behind growth.  This rapid development going unchecked is eroding our natural environment.  Additionally, Sammamish is facing looming deficits for the first time in its history.  It is becoming increasingly important that future growth pay for itself.


We vitally need a councilmember with a vision that emphasizes long term planning and forecasting.  I will leverage over 30 years of professional financial experience, education, and community involvement to ensure the city meets these challenges while avoiding unnecessary tax burdens due to poor planning.

Occupation: Senior Analyst Costco;

I am a PTSA mom, tech industry professional and community volunteer who  will ensure open, transparent government for all Sammamish residents. As an experienced leader I will be good steward of our land, protect the character of our neighborhoods, our trees and environment. I am committed to prioritizing projects by listening to our residents, creating policies and making decisions for all residents, businesses, and future generations.


My priorities are protecting our natural habitats; promoting environmental sustainability; developing  smart solutions for  transportation that serves our city; and ensuring reliable police and fire and support services for everyone.


A leader who listens and ensures all voices are heard, I will bring a nonpartisan, fiscally responsible and solutions-oriented approach to the Sammamish City Council.
