Biography

With your support, I will represent Ramona on the Community Planning Group; reflecting Ramona’s desire to remain a model of rural living in the center of the county.

The issues impacting Ramona’s future deserve action; our family created a safety campaign, the “67 & 78 - Slow for Ramona” bumper stickers. Our rural highways and roads are the only routes to schools, businesses, wineries, recreation and, unfortunately, wildfire evacuation.

A long time Ramona resident, I am a member of the Planning Group’s West Subcommittee, Co-Founder of the SR 67 Safety Project, member of the Ramona Trails Association and the Ramona Stars 4-H Club. I advocate for Foster-to-Adopt Children and volunteer with the International Rescue Committee. Our son is a Mountain Valley Academy student who plays soccer with the Ramona Recreational Soccer League and basketball with the Ramona Recreational Basketball League. Contributing through community service is one of our family values.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

Most folks want a rural Ramona and so do I. The achievement of this ideal is as unique as each resident of Ramona. We care about the establishment and maintenance of the open spaces necessary to ride, bike and hike. We care about our neighbors and respect their privacy and individual rights. We care about our community's safety; wildfires, roads, and law enforcement. We care about development. Land use planning, including road access, reflects our choice of a rural life style. We care about local businesses, we need to support them at the cash register and with a Ramona Village plan that attracts residents and visitors alike. However you envision and live your life in Ramona, it is a direct result of keeping Ramona rural. I support a rural Ramona.
