I have been a resident of Pleasanton for over 23 years.  Married for nearly 30 years, I have 3 children – 16 to 24 years old.  Two of my kids have gone through Pleasanton schools and I currently have one child in high school at Amador Valley.  I have a B.S. degree in Health Science from Cal State University, Northridge.  I have a M.B.A. degree from Cal Lutheran University.

I have been an active community volunteer for nearly 20 years.  I have volunteered in classrooms, band booster programs, PTA, and other school events.  I was a Library Commissioner for the City of Pleasanton for 8 years (termed out in 2014).  I was on the Tri-Valley YMCA Board of Managers for 3 years.  I am currently on the Board of the Pleasanton Cultural Arts Committee.
