My Top 3 Priorities

  • I support slow and smart growth policies for Pleasanton, ensuring infrastructure keeps up with growth.
  • I will work to preserve our historic downtown from massive housing projects.
  • I have consistently supported better City/school district collaboration to resolve school overcrowding.



Preserving Pleasanton’s small-town character has been my motivation for 30 years of community involvement. I have served vulnerable populations as a city commissioner on Pleasanton’s Human Services Commission for 11 years, worked with students at Las Positas College, and by serving on local nonprofit boards – including the board of directors for Tri-Valley REACH (Resources-Education-Activities-Community-Housing), I am currently a board member with NAMI Tri-Valley (National Alliance on Mental Illness).

I have participated on numerous budget and planning committees and task forces for the City of Pleasanton and the Pleasanton Unified School District. I have a lengthy and diverse record of service to Pleasanton and I am ready to apply these experiences to serving the community as a Pleasanton City Councilmember.

I am a small business owner with my husband, Nick. We have lived in Pleasanton for 30 years raising our three children, who attended Pleasanton’s public schools, then graduated from California universities.



I would be honored to have your vote.
