I’m running for San Diego City Council because I’m passionate about public service. As an attorney, I left private practice to become a federal prosecutor and I loved my work because every day I helped to keep our community safe.

I live in the Midway community with my husband, Shane, and our two rescue dogs. I take the trolley to work and I’m involved in many volunteer roles throughout San Diego, including serving as a career mentor for young women as they age out of the foster care system. Throughout the course of my career, I have fought for fairness, justice, and for the advancement of women of all ages.

On the City Council I will bring my strong advocacy skills to fight for the rebuilding of our neighborhoods. I will be a tireless worker to improve the quality of our day-to-day lives, including an increased focus on public safety in our neighborhoods and on our streets, working to improve San Diego’s crumbling infrastructure, and ensuring our coast and public parks remain beautiful.


Right now San Diego is clearly on the wrong track – from the state of our economy to the condition of our streets and neighborhoods. Our elected officials are mired in partisanship and petty bickering, and we’ve had a Mayor resign in disgrace. We need to change the direction of City Hall, get back to basics, and start moving San Diego forward again.

As a federal prosecutor, I know how to stand up and fight for what I believe in and I never let any powerful special interests deter me.
