I'm a different kind of politician. No special interest ties, selfless service for the joy of it, I keep the people's business separate from my personal business.
I moved to Palm Springs in 1998, residing in my great grandmother's 1930's era home in the north Palm Springs neighborhood of Little Tuscany where I sit as a neighborhood group board member. I studied at College of the Desert, completing my B.A. at UC Riverside and am completing my Master's in counseling psychology through a year-long internship with Jewish Family Services of the Desert as a Family and School Counselor.
I serve as a valued member of the Palm Springs Sustainability Commission and as a chairperson of the Little Tuscany Neighborhood Group.
Although I have friends around the valley I have no special interest ties or debts. I am the only caniddate to be personally in touch with and able to understand the city's full range of constituents. I'm not beholden to any group, making me unique among other candidates.
I am a well known and well liked member of many Palm Springs communities. My ties run a balanced course through the old and new interests influencing political and social life in Palm Springs. My involvement in our community is perfectly suited to be the type of mayor that represents the entire village, bringing groups together under accessible, caring and inclusive leadership.
