I have been a home-owner in the Valley since 1990 and in Sherman Oaks since 2004. I ran for a seat on the SONC Board in May 2019 because I felt it was important for me to understand how local government works and how my voice could contribute towards the betterment of my community.
My background and passion have had a constant, underlying theme of personal preparedness and recovery. For almost 20 years as a self-defense instructor, I taught at several private schools and dojo’s throughout Los Angeles. And in the same timeframe, as a LAFD CERT Coordinator, I have helped individuals and families prepare for small and large-scale disasters.
Professionally, I have worked for several studios in Production Finance, Production Audit, Marketing & Global Promotions, and Labor Relations.
