Personal Statement:
I want to help bring our town into the future and meet the challenges waiting for the next generation of leaders. As a creative entrepreneur in the communications field, I believe that communicating with people in a way that ensures they feel engaged, heard, and understood is crucial. Communicating about town government and important local matters need not always be serious to be successful & effective. When we approach our communications too seriously, many people, especially younger voters, tune out… even to things that directly impact them. I think the way to get through to people is to speak their language and engage them in conversation that gets their attention. If elected to the RTM, I will bring that voice, that fresh perspective - and my desire to engage a new generation - to our town government.

Fairfield is the perfect small town, which is why my family and I made the decision to buy a home here four years ago.
