Thank you for visiting my site, and for taking the time to learn about my work.
I have lived in Chico for eleven years. I went to college here, earned my Master's degree here, and I have spent the last decade getting to know this vibrant, community-driven city. I am proud to call Chico home, and eager to be a leader in making it a stronger, kinder, and even more thriving place to live.
I am currently the Vice Mayor of Chico, elected in November of 2018, but my campaign promises remain true today. As your Chico City Councilor, I promise to approach the issues facing our city with an innovative perspective, using the most up-to-date research about what solutions are most effective. I will hear all perspectives, and remember that the decisions I make have a direct impact on all members of our community.
I will draw from my direct service, prevention and administrative background, as well as the knowledge gained while earning my Master's Degree, to address our housing crisis, issues related to homelessness, and gaps in behavioral health services. I will advocate for our police force to be fully trained in crisis intervention and de-escalation techniques. I will also work toward implementation of a responsible cannabis policy that upholds the will of the voters and operates in congruence with our Sustainability Action Plan.
