Biography

I moved to Orange County 20 years ago, where I raised my four children through the public school system and supported their extra-curricular school activities through the local scouting programs and little league.  Today, I have young adults attending local colleges and universities as well as an active duty Marine.  During that course of time, I have worked as an educational leader at local college institutions supporting thousands of high school graduates and working adults who were looking to transform their lives and support their families.  Through their eyes, I saw the potential economic and personal struggles that my own kids would face in adulthood given the current circumstances of our economy and barriers placed by our social ladder.  This is the catalyst of why I decided to become more engaged with our Democratic party and the political landscape of our state and county.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

As a lifelong student learner, a W-2 income earner, a mother, and the daughter of an immigrant, my political philosophy spreads across many issues that have come to the forefront of the political spectrum today.  I believe that healthcare and higher education are basic necessities in order to ensure a well prepared, productive workforce for our community and this state.  Equitable living wages and affordable housing options will retain and sustain the college graduates, experienced working professionals and trade workers whose talents are critical to our community infrastructure and economy. If this county is to continue to be the "Land of the Free" then I believe that this should continue to be demonstrated by allowing people to have the choice over their reproductive rights, gender identity and who they decide to marry. Furthermore, an sensible immigrant reform would allow hard working people to contribute to our growing workforce and raise families that would support local schools and retail.  I also support our active duty service members and military veterans, who I believe are long overdue for an overhaul on improved healthcare and housing options.
