ABOUT ME

A Neighbor You Can Trust

I'm a public educator, mental health professional, parent, neighbor, and volunteer who cares deeply about our community. After graduating from Colorado State University in 2002, I took an educational and professional tour of the Front Range before coming full circle, settling back in Fort Collins with my family in 2015.

A 2018 graduate of City Works 101, former member of the Fort Collins Women's Commission, and interim City Councilmember in District 4 from January to April of 2021, I recognize the importance of local government. Our City Council reflects the current values of our community and lays the groundwork for decades of future success. As a Fort Collins resident with a long-term stake in helping our city thrive, I will invest the time, energy, and care required to enhance and protect our vibrant community.

As a returning Councilmember in 2023, I will ensure increased accessibility and sustainability for all residents in the following focus areas:

1. Community Character

     -Retention/promotion of local businesses

     -Thoughtful development planning

     -Focus on revitalization over gentrification

     -Ample recreation opportunities

     -Enhanced cultural resources

2. Long-Term Livability

     -Employability at all skill levels

     -Living wages for all

     -Conveniently-located achievable housing

     -Expanded public transit options   

3. Environmental Sustainability

     -Forward-thinking waste management

     -Innovative alternative energy options

     -Strengthened climate action plan
