City Council headshots for web (2)

Public service is a mantra in my family, which is why upon retirement, I was pleased to serve on the City of Carlsbad Planning Commission, where I could leverage my 35 years of experience in regional and local planning arenas. Now, as your District 2 City Council Member, I am honored to serve my community in an even broader capacity. With an emphasis on preserving Carlsbad’s excellent quality of life, I am committed to facilitating a positive dialog on many local issues before us today.
