ABOUT ME

I have never been satisfied with the status quo and I've never been afraid to speak out when I see inequity, injustice, inefficiency, or just a better way to get things done. 

 

I moved to Louisville in 2006 with my then 15-month-old daughter to give her a home in a safe, friendly neighborhood with excellent local schools and access to lots of open space.  She is now a proud graduate of Coal Creek Elementary, Louisville Middle School, and Monarch High School. Over the past 17 years, our town has grown and changed in wonderful ways, and I've seen opportunities where I think we can do better. And more recently, we've all seen our town struggle with the aftermath of a wildfire that brought destruction and trauma to so many in our community.  Though our recovery had made progress, we still have lots of work to do. And as this disaster has reinforced what so many of us have long believed,  Louisville is at its best when we all move forward together.

 

I bring expertise in Strategic Marketing and Business Development in emerging technology markets to the oversight of Louisville. I've had the privilege of working across five continents in roles from individual contributor to executive leadership with early stage start-ups, Fortune 500's, and every size company in between. In a career steeped in innovation, I've successfully guided companies as they've developed new products and forged new markets based on a range of cutting-edge technologies. I rely on the knowledge and skills I've acquired over nearly 40 years to my duties and responsibilities as a Councilmember and enjoy the collegiality, collaboration, and wisdom of my fellow citizen representatives also sitting on the City Council. 

 

I'm a graduate of the University of California San Diego with a degree in Math-Computer Science and a right brain penchant for painting and poetry. I am also the founder of my own strategic consultancy that has led me to become an internationally  recognized industry thought leader and sought after market analyst in the digital identity marketplace. In previous lives, I founded my own upscale retail business in a community not unlike Louisville, spent a season working as a GO (customer relations staff member) at Club Med in the Bahamas, backpacked around the world for a year, and became a single mother-by=choice at 44 - the best decision I ever made and the one that brought me to Louisville. 

I believe my unique life journey has given me valuable perspective that I bring to the City Council.  My collaborative team-building skills and expertise in innovative problem-solving serve the community well as we face increasingly difficult and complex challenges.  And, while I do have ideas about what I think would make Louisville an even better place to live, I remain committed to policies and positions that represent the community's vision and values as a whole -- not special interests or the privileged few, but the will of the people of our amazing little town.
