My Top 3 Priorities

  • Building the water reclamation facility at the selected site.
  • Encouraging new businesses to give Morro ay a try. We need more diverse, higher paying jobs instead of relying so heavily on tourism.
  • Completing a short-term rental policy and finding ways to increase the availability of affordable housing.

I earned my BA in Social Sciences/ Psychology and a General Education credential from San Jose State University.

I received a Special Education/Learning Disabled credential from Long Beach State University.


I moved to Morro Bay 11 years ago after retiring from teaching for the Los Angeles Unified School District. I started volunteering at various places in pursuit of my desire  to be a contributing citizen in my new hometown. It wasn’t long before I was hired to work part-time at the Morro Bay Visitor’s Center.  I am still working there today.  I am a member of the Morro Bay Chamber of Commerce, the Morro Bay Open Space Alliance and the Morro Bay Historical Society.  I volunteer at the Morro Bay Museum of Natural History and with Morro Bay in Bloom.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

I believe that the purpose of government is to make decisions that benefit the citizens.  This process requires conversation and compromise.  I appreciate "civil discourse".  I understand that total  agreement on issues is not likely to happen, but fair, open discussions starting with common areas of agreement are important in order to reach a conclusion acceptable to the majority.
