"I’ve always been driven to make the world better than I found it. That’s why I’ve pursued a career in policy and advocacy work in the nonprofit, public, and human service sectors, and that’s why I want to continue volunteering my time and skills to the betterment of our city.

A Healthy, Clean and Sustainable City:
Let's preserve our trees and green space, reduce runoff, and promote renewable energy to enhance quality of life, safeguard our air and water, and protect our homes all while reducing costs.
