My parents moved our family to Rohnert Park in 1961. I attended
John Reed Elementary, Rohnert Park Junior High, and Rancho Cotate
High School and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in
Communications from Brigham Young University.
My father and I opened a wholesale insurance business in the summer
of 1997, where I continue to work as the Director of Operations.
My husband, Sean and I married in 1999 and are the parents of three boys.
We made our home in Rohnert Park because of our great
community and excellent schools. I continue to enjoy serving
alongside many dedicated community volunteers.

I have thoroughly enjoyed serving the past four years
and look forward to earning your support for another four.
My favorite part of the job is making connections between our residents and
city services. One Saturday, a woman texted a picture of some hateful graffiti
on one of our neighborhood fences. I alerted public works and as soon as
they learned of the issue, they had it painted over within an hour and a half.
