I know and love Arlington County, my home for 25 years. I am running for Arlington County Board in the November 7, 2023 election to bring common sense leadership to build Arlington’s future.
An engineer, executive and mom, I am an experienced problem solver ready to serve our community.
From stabilizing affordable housing to driving innovation at the U.S. Treasury, my track record and experience have prepared me well to serve Arlington on January 1, 2024.
I look forward to what we can achieve together and ask for your vote on or before November 7. Thank you.
