My parents and I immigrated to the United States when I was a child – we found a welcoming community here in Orange. I’ve lived in what’s now District 3 for 41 years. I’m a product of the Orange Unified School District, attending Taft Elementary School, Peralta Junior High School, and Villa Park High School, before graduating from California State University, Long Beach.
I’m not a career politician who’s run for office over and over again. I launched my own small business here in Orange District 3 fifteen years ago. I’m involved in our community: Orange Community Foundation, Orange Chamber of Commerce and Orange Woman’s Club.
In the past year as your Councilwoman, I’ve delivered results:
- Led approval of new police officers
- Added an additional rescue ambulance
- Advocated for a Veterans’ Cemetery northeast of Orange
- I’ve led Orange’s efforts to urge Sacramento to suspend the gas tax for six months
As your Councilwoman, I’ll continue to fight for you by:
- Strengthening public safety
- Reducing homelessness
- Opposing new taxes
- Ensuring the future of the Orange Mall
I’ve earned endorsements from City of Orange Police Association, Orange City Firefighters; Orange County Sheriff Don Barnes; Orange Mayor Mark Murphy, Councilmembers Kim Nichols, Jon Dumitru, Chip Monaco; former Orange Councilmembers Mike Alvarez, Denis Bilodeau, Mike Spurgeon, Bill Steiner, Fred Whitaker; Orange County Treasurer Shari Freidenrich; Every Orange County Board of Education Trustee; California Homeowners Association; California Taxpayers Coalition; California Women’s Leadership Association.
