I have served in public office for over 12 years and was first elected to the Mill Valley City Council in November 2007. I served three terms and was Mayor in 2010, 2014, and 2018. I have served as a Board member for several organizations, including the Transportation Authority of Marin, the Marin Transit District, and the Sonoma Marin Area Rail Transit District (SMART).
Firmly grounded in promoting the safety and well-being of my community, prior to elected office, I served two terms as Chair of the Mill Valley Emergency Preparedness Commission, led Division 6 of Mill Valley’s Community Emergency Response Team (CERT), served as Co-Chair of the Mill Valley Middle School and Old Mill School Emergency Preparedness Committees, and was President of the West Blithedale Canyon Neighborhood Association.
Professionally, for over a decade, I managed environmental regulatory compliance and sustainability programs at Pacific Gas and Electric Company. I have also worked in the fields of communication and non-profit philanthropy.
