Elected in 2013, I am currently serving my first term as city councilwoman.
My husband and I moved to Woodland in 2002 when our oldest daughter was 8-years old. We chose Woodland for its location, beauty, size, and affordability. We have welcomed 4 more children to our family (three daughters and one son) and are expecting our second son in October 2015. Woodland is a great place to raise a family.
I earned an A.A. in Business Management from Lower Columbia College and pursued a Bachelor’s degree in psychology from Washington State University, Vancouver. I have worked in the private sector for over 15 years but left to stay home and homeschool my children in 2006.
I began attending city council meetings over a year before I ran for office. I was initially prompted to become involved when the council voted to adopt a utility tax. I remain passionate about keeping Woodland’s cost of living low and its standard of living high. I am committed to the principles of limited government and fiscal responsibility. I believe that, if the average citizen must live within their means and budget accordingly, then so should their elected officials.
I am currently serving on the Public Safety and Human Resources Committee.
