Personal
My husband Dave and I just celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary on Jan. 1. We have two outstanding boys, Alex, 23 and Kyle, 19 who both graduated from Sam Barlow High School. Alex graduated from OSU in 2013 and Kyle is a sophomore at OSU. We’re so proud of both our boys!

I am humbled and honored to lead the city through some very challenging times. We have a lot of work to do and I’m confident positive changes will be made this year and into the next. Our job on Council is to listen, respect and respond to our community and I take this responsibility very seriously. I am always available to hear your ideas, suggestions and concerns.
