Why I'm Running

I grew up in Carrollton, attended CFBISD schools, and have lived in this area for most of my life. My husband and I chose Farmers Branch as our home in 2012, and we’ve grown our family to include two elementary school-aged boys. Being a mom to young children, participating on the Library Board, and getting involved in my children’s school and local activities gives me a perspective on the needs of our community that isn’t currently represented on our city council. The perspective I can bring will keep council focused on the future that today’s residents expect.

I BELIEVE:

  • We need to invest in the people and programs within our community. Civic assets like our library, public schools, senior center (The Branch Connection), and parks need funding to keep up with the rapid changes in the ways we work, learn, and socialize.
  • There should be transparency in the council’s decision making process. Residents should be included at the start of the discussion, not the end.
  • We must have constructive, respectful conversations. As a community, we must address our different perspectives on potentially divisive issues that may arise. 
  • Our city's diversity is a strength. By including all of our voices, we will make better decisions to carry out the vision of what Farmers Branch can become in the future.

The voices in our city should shape the decisions made by our council. The choices we make should allow our residents to enjoy their best life while maintaining fiscal responsibility. I will serve Farmers Branch so that our residents may continue to grow and thrive.
