My military upbringing was a formative experience, and led me to seek long-term connections and community on the beautiful Monterey Peninsula. For the last 8 years, I've worked at the Naval Postgraduate School, where I'm currently enrolled in an MBA program. I also earned my undergrad from CSUMB in 2013. Through my community work on the Peninsula, I've truly found a lifelong home. My work with fellow community members was fundamental in the decision to run for City Council.


I have a proven track record of bringing people of diverse backgrounds together to accomplish common goals.  As an organizer for President Obama’s re-election campaign out of the San Francisco headquarters, I was proud to manage a staff of 30 and over 500 volunteers in a successful endeavor. More recently, I worked to bring that same sense of purpose as a founder of Monterey Peninsula Pride, the first local pride event in over a decade. This unifying and inclusive event had support from diverse community organization such as churches, healthcare organizations and numerous public officials. It was a powerful event, with over 700 in attendance united by our commitment of respect for all — and regional solidarity!


On challenges like increasing access to affordable housing, improving transportation infrastructure, and providing a sustainable water supply, Monterey is not alone. I will collaborate with regional partners to tackle these tough issues, and improve our quality of life on the Central Coast.
