An educator, property manager, and mom who as councilwoman will foster informed, progressive discourse toward decisons that will make College Township an even better place to live.
I’m a work-at-home-mom of two hilarious children and the partner of one particularly patient husband. I very recently finished a four-year stint as an independent childbirth educator and doula: a rewarding small business I ran out of my home. I also manage a few properties around town and work at my children’s preschool. My family and I have lived in College Township for more than six years (12 years total in the Centre Region). We've settled in Houserville for what we intend to be a very long time.↑
My qualifications are the experiences of my life that have shaped my outlook and given me a quality I believe every councilperson should embody: perspective.
I feel these very diverse and powerful experiences have afforded me ample practice at seeing and balancing many different perspectives. This is what I plan to bring to College Township Council. I don’t believe that my candidacy is about creating a platform issue, or explaining my agenda. I will make a great councilwoman not because my perspective is perfect, because I have the drive to hear, the ability to listen, and the experience to know that the best answers come from the group, the whole, our community.↑
I love College Township’s laid-back, rural-suburban personality. I am uncomfortable with the idea of transitioning East College Avenue into a North-Atherton-like thoroughfare (although North Atherton Street does do sidewalks really well).
I love sidewalks, bike paths, and alternative modes of transportation.
I have solar panels on my roof. I am interested in renewable energy.↑
I am interested in creative solutions to the workforce housing dilemma and would choose to keep Hilltop zoned MHP unless compelled otherwise by my constituents.
I am very sympathetic toward our local business owners.
I would like to invite my generation and those after me into civic conversation by encouraging College Township to create a social media presence by making their website more navigable, creating an active Facebook page, and considering an active Twitter account.
I am not currently knowledgeable on the issue of budgetary concerns, but I am not a risk-taker or a big spender, and I do not operate on debt.↑
