I am a proud second-generation Adams County resident. I was raised in Brighton and graduated from the Brighton 27J School District.
I have over 20 years of government experience in purchasing and contracts. I currently work as a Procurement Agent for the City of Aurora where I oversee the bids and contracts for operating and maintenance service, roadway design, architecture/engineering services and special projects.
I am a former employee of Adams County Government. I worked for Adams County for over 13 years – starting out as an Elections Clerk and working my way up to a Procurement Agent. While working for Adams County, Commissioner's Elaine Valente, Marty Flaum and Ted Strickland implemented a college tuition reimbursement program for employees. Working full-time and attending classes part-time, I graduated with my Bachelor's degree at age 36.
My parents taught my siblings and me the value of giving to others, and I have found my most meaningful work being an active volunteer and community member.
I had the honor of serving two terms as a Brighton City Council member.
I've participated on various community boards including Brighton 27J School District's Long-Term Facility Planning Committee, Brighton Parks & Recreation Advisory Board, and Brighton/Adams County Sub-Regional Farmland Preservation Committee.
Additionally, I gained invaluable experience as council liaison to the Greater Brighton Fire Protection District, former Chair of the Adams County Sub-Regional Transportation Committee, former Director of the Denver Regional Council of Governments, former Chair of Smart Commute Metro North, and former Chair of North Area Transportation Alliance.
