Being a wife, mom, educator, and long-time resident, I am a willing servant and leader. My husband and I have lived in Westminster for 25 years, and our children attended neighborhood public schools. With a doctorate in leadership and demonstrated leadership skills in management roles, I am committed to thoughtful planning, considered preparation, and strategic implementation of a welcoming and inclusive city; living, working, and playing balance; sustainable and safe environment; attainable housing; and community partnerships.

3.) Please list your top three priorities if elected.

Growth, Attainable Housing, Community Partnerships

4.) How do you see Westminster best taking advantage of the economic boom in Metropolitan Denver?

There are so many great opportunities. Westminster is right on edge. With the new downtown, new businesses coming to the city like the Spaghetti Factory, and the new Westminster train station, the economic outlook for Westminster is looking good. People are going to want to come to Westminster to shop, do business, live, work, and play.

5.) Explain your opinion regarding the city's role in promoting or reacting to ethnic and linguistic diversity?

A welcoming and inclusive city are values important to me personally. Westminster has been a leader in promoting ethnic and linguistic diversity with its implementation of the Inclusivity Committee. It is committed to building a welcoming and inclusive community. This is what made me want to be get involved in the city government. I find this exciting. I look forward to supporting and promoting these values in all the future policy development.
