Biography

I have been a Harbor Commissioner for the past eight years and have led the District to highest revenues in history.  My strong business background and leadership abilities have assisted the Commission in making decisions to move the Port forward and we are succeeding.  I participate at local, state, and international levels to raise awareness of our Port, and to acquire knowledge to advocate for this critical County resource. I am a Certified Global Business Professional, Certified Mediator, and business consultant.  I understand international trade and how the Port and its customers can work together to generate more economic impact on our region.  I have taken leadership roles in domestic and international port associations which assist our Port with new ideas and building positive relationships, and I am active in our local community to promote the Port.  I am a current member of LAFCo, elected by my peers for this six-year term.
