I am married and the mother of two adult children.  I grew up in the South Bay and graduated from LAUSD schools.  earned an Associate’s Degree in Liberal Arts at Los Angeles Harbor College, and graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor’s Degree in Liberal Studies  and Teaching Credential from California State University Dominguez Hills.  I currently teach 8th grade science at the middle school I attended in my youth.   

I am running for public office because I am frustrated with failed leadership and the lack of fiscal responsibility in Sacramento.   Exercising my right to vote is no longer enough.   I feel it is time to get into action, to aspire to be part of the conversation in Sacramento.

 If elected I will vote to support measures that support public safety, and stimulate the economy and job growth.  I will vote to protect Prop 13 for residential and commercial property owners. I support cutting taxes to stimulate economic growth in the private sector and preserving tax credits for the working poor. 

I will support legislation that improves K-12 education and returns as much control as possible over spending and decision-making to  local school sites and support the creation of more vocational training opportunities and college readiness programs for youth in our communities.  

I will fight to derail the bullet train project that Californian’s cannot afford, and divert funding desperately needed for local transportation and water infrastructure projects. 

I will also vote to protect California residents’ 2nd Amendment and Constitutional rights.  I will support measures that provide funding for housing and other services needed by our veterans.  

I will support measures that would allow out-of-state insurers to do business in California and provide our citizens with a variety of health plans that better meet their needs, rather than the current one-size-fits all approach.
