My Top 3 Priorities

  • My top priority is the environment, health insurance, & comprehensive immigration reform.
  • I have spent the last 13 years working to promote California's Energy Efficiency & Clean Energy policies. I want to take my background, experience, and knowledge to DC to push forward the Green New Deal.
  • I will work to protect the Affordable Care Act, while we expand Medicaid coverage, and assess how we can bring health insurance to all via Medicare or other options.




 I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in communications from the University of Florida. Over the last 30 years, I have held senior level management roles in health insurance, homebuilding, development & infrastructure, utilities, and clean energy in California, and nationwide. I’m an entrepreneur who has developed solutions to many issues that impact District 42. 

My experience taught me valuable negotiating, communication, stakeholder engagement, regulatory, and policymaking skills that I will use in Congress. I understand the importance of having a representative who will work for the “people” when interacting with local, state, and federal governments. Many times, the government is focused on developing a strong tax base for maintaining the “status quo” and not for the benefit of the community. As the endorsed AFL- CIO candidate, I will be a champion for the people, not the powerful. 

CA 42 is the growth center for the next 20+ years. This will mean increased traffic, additional strain on our energy and water infrastructure, a negative impact on our air quality, increased demand on our school districts, and police/fire resources. My vision is to protect the constituents and work with our local, state, and federal governments to create solutions for sustainable growth that doesn’t raise taxes beyond the ability of our residents to pay. 


To ensure our region has the resources needed to meet the challenges ahead, we need a leader who has the experience to hit the ground running on day one. Put me to work for you in CA 42. Thank you.
