My goal is to make it easy for you to get involved in making Havenscourt the best place to live and work that it can be. My background is in digital marketing and communications, and I’m working to shape how the HNA communicates with residents and others. I’ve lived in Havenscourt since 2020 and love meeting neighbors—if you see me on one of my daily walks with my dog Chief, stop me and say hi! Hablo español (si me habla despacio).

I am a CPA by trade and have been active in several non-profit and volunteer capacities. I am ready to jump in and provide assistance where needed. My day job is working for the state helping to keep Californians safe from “bad” accountants. On Thursdays I am a volunteer scuba diver at the Aquarium of the Bay. In the past I was an active member and board member of organizations such as the Venice (California) Neighborhood Council, Association of Certified Fraud Examiners, CalCPA and an arts organization located in Southern California.
