I'm an incumbent, a teacher, and an environmentalist, and I'm running to keep my seat. I care deeply about the place we call home, and I want to give voice to the needs and concerns of younger and future generations of San Anselmans. As a lifelong Ross Valley resident, a teacher, and the youngest councilmember in Marin County, I represent a commitment to a safe, resilient future and quality of life for all.

I'm a hands-on councilmember, because I like to get things done and get them done well. Since joining the Council, I have:
I prioritize quality of life for all in changing times. This means: community safety and resiliency; livability and affordability for folks new and old; pedestrian and bicycle safety; equity and justice initiatives; and maintaining vibrants arts, downtown, and cultural life.
I am proud to be endorsed by every major group, including our Firefighters, the Sierra Club, the Marin Democratic Party, and the California Democratic Party. I'm also endorsed by Senator Mike McGuire, Supervisor Katie Rice, Mayor Ford Greene and Councilmember Steve Burdo, Town Commissioners, business owners, former mayors, and dozens of your neighbors and friends!
