As a 4th generation Monterey County resident, working Mom, and daughter of a parent educator and Army veteran, nothing is more important to me than safe communities and every family’s access to a good job, affordable home, and quality healthcare.

Working with you and a broad coalition of County leaders, I’ve deepened partnerships to create opportunity for every family by: convening new regional partnerships to end homelessness; expanding culturally competent services; investing in the Building Business Back program, helping small businesses recover from COVID; increasing accountability and transparency at the Sheriff’s Office; and organizing a national coalition to support reproductive rights.

I’ve secured millions to triple the number of health exam rooms serving thousands of Medi-Cal patients; retain quality teachers; reduce gangs/crime; increase free school meals; and add shelter beds for homeless families.

I’m continuing the fight to improve our quality of life through my leadership on the Central California Alliance for Health; Air Pollution Control District; and County Homelessness Committee among other boards.

I respectfully ask for your vote to continue my track record of results. Join the California Nurses Association, Monterey Bay Central Labor Council, Planned Parenthood Advocates Mar Monte and many more!
