SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the SC Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.

My husband, Christopher, and I are proud to call San Clemente home. This is a wonderful, unique city, and I’m running for city council to improve our community’s high quality of life.
I’m not a politician, and I’ve never run for elected office. I’m simply a concerned citizen, mother and business owner who wants to give back even more to San Clemente.
I’ve spent my career in the private sector and, as a businesswoman, I know what it takes to create jobs, balance budgets, manage employees, make payroll and battle government red tape. Through my service with the Orange County Senior Citizens Advisory Council, I understand how to make government run more like a business.
I’m honored to be a member of several organizations and charities for San Clemente.
I care deeply about our city and the people of San Clemente. I have worked to launch several initiatives, and I currently serve as a board member on several committees and volunteer at many nonprofits:
- Orange County Office on Aging Board Member for Senior Citizens Advisory Board and the Elderly Health and Nutrition Committee
- Volunteer Leader for the Senior Ministry for my church
- Breast Cancer Awareness Drives
- Baby Boomer Basics senior safety advocacy
- Clean Up the Beach
- Bark, Buckle Up & Bark 10-4: pet travel safety programs partnering with first responders
I would like to help with keeping our city safer, as well as implement my program to decrease homelessness, reduce traffic and prevent a toll road by improving local mobility with programs like OCFLEX, which has been successful in our surrounding cities in Orange County.
I would be honored to earn your vote for our city council on Nov. 5, 2019.
