Appointed 2018, Elected 2020
I have lived in Clarkdale since 2004 with my husband Nick. We were both born and raised in Southern California and I am a 5th generation native. We met in high school and married in 1981. After living for several decades with urban congestion and a hectic lifestyle we chose to take a leap of faith and relocate to Arizona. After spending numerous vacations here over 18 years, we chose Clarkdale because of its rich beauty, history and community spirit. Of all the places that we have lived and visited over the years, we feel that Clarkdale offers the best location, quality of life, and the friendliest community, and we are proud to operate a small business here and call it our hometown.
I am involved in many events in the area, especially those focused on historic preservation and sustainable growth. I have served the Town of Clarkdale as a Planning and Zoning Commissioner since 2015. I have also volunteered and served on multiple boards and organizations including Questers International, Clarkdale Downtown Business Alliance, and the Verde Valley Regional Economic Organization.
I retired from a Global Fortune 500 company in 2014 after working there for over 30 years. I have an extensive background in personnel management, professional services and managing technical projects in the corporate enterprise space.
I am actively involved with greyhounds, currently serving on the board of Greyhound Pets of Arizona, which is dedicated to the adoption of retired racing greyhounds into their forever homes.
I love spending time at home with my husband and our precious greyhounds. I also have a variety of hobbies and interests including hiking, kayaking, camping, and I am always available to shop at flea markets and antique stores.
We have put down deep roots here in Clarkdale, and I believe that my community involvement, work experiences, and volunteerism have prepared me to work with people in a variety of settings, find solutions to problems, operate within budget constraints and listen to the concerns of others. I feel that these are skills that would allow me to bring value to the council and the town. I welcome the opportunity to give back to our town.
