My Top 3 Priorities

  • Ensure that all residents of West Hollywood are provided with all of the basic human dignities. Safe and affordable housing, living wages, food and healthcare.
  • Change the perception of "development" in our conversation to include all development. Historic preservation, hotels, affordable housing, parks etc.
  • Seniors.



My love affair with West Hollywood began when I first moved here in 1993. I have fond memories of my 

first job at the Pacific Design Center, back when it was just the blue and green buildings. I remember 

being impressed with the friendliness, cleanliness, eclecticism, and how safe it seemed. It was so 

inclusive and diverse from one end of the city to the other. So many different lifestyles and cultures, I 

knew it would be a lifelong love affair. Currently I live with my husband Shawn and our cat Jade in a 

quaint studio apartment in the Norma Triangle.

Now, many years later, I walk around and reminisce of those early years and think about how can we 

preserve these qualities for future generations while embracing the growth and change of West 


For the last twenty years I have been a soldier in the U.S. Army, business owner, entertainer, as well as 

worked in the hospitality industry. My most rewarding position has been as a General Manager of two 

retirement communities. As a Senior Living Executive not only did I care for the residents, I also led and 

mentored a team of young adults. I worked closely with the California Workability program through the 

school districts. We had an excellent success rate, the young people graduated and either stayed employed 

with me, or moved on to other jobs and college. For the seniors, I was a friend, councilor, resource, and 

first responder. This is where I developed my desire to look out for all seniors and the disadvantaged. It is 

our responsibility to care for our seniors, especially our LGBT seniors who may not have anyone to care 

for them. Together we can ensure that not only do the seniors of West Hollywood have affordable 

housing, food, and healthcare, but every resident calling West Hollywood home has access to these basic 

human dignities.

As a leader for most of life I have learned that not only must you listen to the need of those looking up to 

you, but you must also show them that you listened. I will be a steward of West Hollywood and preserve 

its eclectic history as well as serve you fairly.
