Experience

I truly #BELIEVE that I am the best choice for this position and for our community, that I am proud to call my hometown.

My mother always told me to go out into the world and do well, but more importantly, do good. Since being a little girl, I have made this my mission. I know that I have a duty to my fellow citizens, and I measure the value of my life on the good I can do and influence.

As we evolve and grow as a community, it is crucial that we protect, our culture, our history and what makes Reno, Reno. We are unique, and our community is strong making us one-of-a-kind. We are the Biggest Little City in the World and I wouldn’t have us any other way.

The concept of compassionate commerce, where we couple the importance of economic development and the care of our citizens is a concept, I would forward to the City of Reno. While working to diversify our workforce, build tourism and develop properties we can match these efforts with protecting our environment, funding social services and holding groups accountable.

Over the years I have worked as a homeless advocate and continuously strive to promote programs that are sustainable and provide measurable outcomes and success rates.

I have confidence in Reno’s economic diversity from our historical gaming to our more recent startup technology companies. I worked on the StartUp Row campaign, facilitated community collaborative catalyst groups such as House of Genius and the StartUp deck with EDAWN.

Through the Riverwalk District we raised nearly a million dollars in, donations, fundraising, events, in-kind sponsorships and initiatives for the beautification of our urban core over the last 11 years. In addition, environmental efforts such as a straw-less downtown, clean Truckee river, graffiti removal, and community trash pick-up days.

Arts are crucial to any city, and we are lucky to have a robust arts community including dedicated volunteers, amazing museums, Broadway, Burning Man and we truly shine as a city when we become ARTown in July. The arts have tremendous economic benefits, tourism traffic and assist to add dimension to an area. I have worked with mural groups, the burning man park, created Reno’s first Parklet, hosted international artists and encourage them to make Reno their home.

I have come to know the Council, staff, municipality leaders and stakeholders on a personal level. Over the course of these relationships, I believe I have proven myself to be a trustworthy, open-minded, collaborative, creative and steadfast candidate. I trust my record and relationships will speak for themselves. I would be honored for the opportunity to serve my city in this higher capacity.

I know that with my background, specific skill sets I can be of the most service to my Ward 1 neighbors and help to protect everything that makes us so special and unique to our City.
