I am a life long Democrat, starting with a photo op with Eleanor Roosevelt when I was two. I am high school librarian at Carmel High where I have worked for nine years.  I worked for 15 years at Seaside High. I have also worked as teacher for grades 1-8. I am a wife and mother and will soon be a grandmother! I am the board president for the National Coalition Bulding Institute an organization that works to end discrimmination of all kinds. I am also on the board of our local Democratic Club and a member of the Monterey County Democratis Central Committee.

I was a delegate to the 2012 Democratic National Convention in Charlotte; seeing President Obama was a true high point in my life. I have worked on political campaigns since I was in junior high on behalf of local and national candidates. In 20188 and 2012 I travelled to Nevada to walk precints in the general election. I also phone banked in 2004, 08, and 2012. I am a true Democrat and will represent you, the voter, as a member of the Central Committee. For the past three years I have organized the Democratic booths at the July 4th celebration and our County Fair. I am not just a Central Committee member, attending monthly meeting, but a hard working member- organzing Debate Watch Parties, volunteer fairs, training of hosts, co-managing the Center and volunteers, registering voters at the Monterey Farmer's market and much more!

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

I believe in equality for all. I want hard working people to be fairly compensated. I want immigrants in this country to be granted a path to ctizenship. As an educator I see the inequites in education. I want all children to get the best education money can buy and yes money makes a difference! I want all young people to get an education and not be saddled with debt upon graduation from college. I am anit-war and have been since the days of Vietnam. I believe our best option is to support governments with assistance not bombs and guns. Every person should have access to health care that is affordable.  I am a progressive Democrat who will support our party's nominee.
