My Top 3 Priorities

  • Make sure the funds from Measure GC are spent in a fiscally responsible manner. Having worked with a Real Estate Developer, oversaw projects and made sure they were completed on time and within budget.
  • Expand vocational training programs at the college. Worked at a Court Reporting college as the Business Office, I saw the need to have affordable vocational training programs for students not interested in a 4 year degree.
  • Make sure the Garfield Campus gets the funding necessary to expand its campus to include vocational and job training.

Biography

I am a proud product of the Glendale Unified School District, and truly understand the diverse needs of the Glendale community.  I attended Glendale Community College achieving Dean's list.  I graduated from USC with a BS in Anthropology and later continued with my Graduate Studies in Anthropology at Cal State University, Los Angeles.

 

I began my career working as the head of the Business office of vocational school for court reporting, where I learned the intricacies of Title IV funding and Financial Aid.  I later established my business The Counting House, a boutique accounting and business management firm in Glendale.  I am honored to be able to get involved in many community organizations, currently as Past-President of Glendale Sunrise Rotary, Treasure of Glendale Educational Foundation, Vice President of the Glendale Rose Float Assocation, Treasurer of Silver Lake Chamber of Commerce.  I also have the pleasure to serve as a lecturer at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena.  I have the unique experience of being a student at GCC, an administrator and an educator in higher education.  

I am grateful to the community that gave me the strong foundation needed to accomplish all that I have been able to, and would like to give back to that community.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

I am an independant woman, and thus, do not subscribe to any one party philosophy.  I have voted for different parties at different elections, and will continue to do so.  Further, I find that politics have become too divisive today, and I choose not to be part of a subgroup.
