WHERE I COME FROM
As a Snoqualmie resident for over 20 years, I've seen many changes within our city and the Snoqualmie Valley. I will work to cultivate and preserve Snoqualmie’s uniqueness and natural beauty while planning for the economic health of our community and generating support for local businesses. As a senior citizen on a fixed income, I bring a practical perspective that recognizes the importance of fiscal accountability, affordable housing, and community planning.
For the past 45 years, I've served in the fields of emergency medicine, veterinary medicine and firefighting. I've been a member of the Snoqualmie Fire Department for over 20 years, responding on the aid unit, organizing the annual Pancake Breakfast, and leading medical trainings. I am also a volunteer and Co-Chair for the Snoqualmie Arts Commission. My dedication to our community runs deep and I bring a unique understanding from decades of service.
It would be my honor and privilege to receive your vote of support for Snoqualmie City Council.
Education: Doctorate Veterinary Medicine, Colorado State University; Emergency Medical Technician (EMT), WA; Paramedic Firefighter, CO, HI.
