I thrive on actively helping the communities where I live, work, and play. I grew up learning the importance of service to those most in need, taking initiative, not shying away from a challenge, and stepping up. My profession as an educator has focused on service to others. It has taught me that listening, compassion, flexibility, collaboration, and creativity are necessary to get the job done. These are experiences and characteristics that I will bring to the city council.Learn More
