I am a working mom raising three kids together with my partner in southwest Portland. I am passionate about water and the ecosystems of the Pacific Northwest and have been working for the Portland Water Bureau for the last 10 years. As a city employee I'm also a proud member of Protec17.
I love to build community and advocate for positive change but only recently imagined that I could have the opportunity to represent my neighbors in City Hall. I am excited at the opportunity that charter reform has created for ordinary people like me to run for public office.
I grew up in and around Portland. We moved around a lot when I was a kid. In the first grade alone, I attended three different schools including Skyline. I have lived, learned and worked in many of our neighborhoods, from north of Linnton to South Portland, Lents, Downtown, Multnomah Village, Creston-Kenilworth, Woodstock, Sellwood-Moreland, Reed, Lloyd, Kerns, Eliot, Hayhurst, and now Maplewood.
Portland is my home. I want to make sure it's a place where each and everyone of us is treated with respect and we each have the opportunity to thrive and grow.
