My Top 3 Priorities

  • Elect more and better Democrats throughout San Diego County, but especially in the South Area.
  • Provide resources to engage more Democrats in the work of building greater justice.
  • Build bridges and relationships with elected Democrats to better serve our communities.

Experience

Biography

I care about justice, integrity, and wisdom in how we operate in political spaces, because ultimately, our purpose is to serve and uplift one another. Sometimes we get so wrapped up in the fight for greater justice, we temporarily lose sight of the humanity of others.

As the Vice Chair of the San Diego County Democratic Party for our area, I am willing to do the ongoing work to remind us of who we are, fundamentally, even as we at times disagree.

I raised two children mostly as a single parent (though it definitely takes a village!), and I spent most of those years living paycheck to paycheck. I get how hard it is to live in survival mode, and we need to work together to make sure we are uplifting the needs of others who are too busy getting through the basics of life to be politically active.

There is so much we can do to increase equity for all community members, and I am here for it.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

I support Democrats who make our communities more just and safe for all, who support policies that create living wage jobs, equal access to education, and affordable housing. 

Getting these leaders elected, showing up to support them at critical junctures, and mentoring and supporting newly engaged folks is critical to creating a just society.

Knowledge is a powerful resource, and sharing it is our responsibility to the youth who invigorate, inspire, and work in our community. I honor those elders who have laid the groundwork for greater justice, whose battles are too easily forgotten, and hold it as a duty to identify those things that connect rather than divide us.

There is always hope, as long as there are good people willing to do the work.
