I have had the pleasure and honor to serve as Area VII Trustee for the Cabrillo Community College, representing portions of Watsonville, San Benito County, North Monterey County and the southern part of the Pajaro Valley area since 2012.

I am deeply committed to providing the best educational opportunities for all our residents.

I have lived in the Watsonville area most of my life. I attended public schools, graduating from Watsonville High School, Cabrillo College, and Sonoma State. As a local business owner, I understand the importance of fiscal responsibility and will do my part in helping guide the college during the next four years. I believe in volunteering and service to help our community expand educational opportunities for everyone.

For 25 years I was a Reserve Firefighter for the City of Watsonville. I have served in leadership capacities as a Board member for: Cabrillo College Foundation, Pajaro Valley Chamber of Commerce, Rotary Club of Watsonville (Past President), Watsonville Firefighters Association, Watsonville National Little League, Watsonville YMCA, and Watsonville YWCA.

I am committed to helping our residents realize their dreams of attending college, transferring to a 4-year university or obtaining the necessary technical training in preparation to enter our everchanging work environment.
