Biography

I am a community advocate who has been organizing in Redwood City for more than 20 years. I have championed education, healthcare, and housing throughout that career of advocacy. I served Housing Leadership Council of San Mateo County as a Community Builder, organizing in communities and advocating for policies to increase affordable housing. I served on the San Mateo County Living Wage Task Force, a coalition of labor and faith leaders working with electeds to ensure living wage protections for local workers. I served on the City of Redwood City Housing and Human Concerns Committee. I am a veteran leader and twice served as Co-Chair of Peninsula Interfaith Action (currently Faith in Action Bay Area), where I advocated for schools at the state level and access to healthcare and housing at the county, state, and national levels. I am currently a member of the Working Families Coalition, which advocates for a variety of justice issues throughout the County. In recent years housing has been my focus, because I believe stable housing is the foundation for a stable and healthy community.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

I currently serve on the San Mateo County Democratic Central Committee as an elected member. I provide real value to the Central Committee as I believe in the traditional Democratic values of advocating for the most vulnerable in our community. I advocate for housing, economic, and environmental justice and believe my presence at the Central Committee table provides a reminder those values are what separate us from other political parties.
