Serving Our Community

I have found that when a group of passionate, inspired people get together and work towards a common goal, positive policies and progress prevail over individual views and differences that might usually separate them.


I have worked with many of your neighbors and friends as the Secretary for Thurston Climate Action Team (TCAT) creating and engaging in local action for better land-use planning, greener buildings and policies and practices that will conscientiously mitigate impacts of this climate emergency.



I have been an active member of the Thurston County Democrats, supporting the success of the Burger Booth, which has brought all manner of individuals together for a fun activity that promotes the honest leadership and hard work of all elected officials and local party members.  



I have supported numerous organizations which lift up our most vulnerable community members and ensure they are cared for. Organizations like the Crisis Clinic of Thurston and Mason County, the Combined Fund Drive, the Red Ribbon Gala, Toastmasters International, and the Project Management Institute. I am also a member with the American Federation of State, City and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) union, Local 28, part of the Washington Federation of State Employees (WFSE).


The role I am most honored to have served was as a US Navy Submariner. I served our country during the Gulf War and was honorably discharged in 1993 as a disabled veteran. This role was fundamental in instilling the idea that success only comes when we stand together and lean on one another for support to overcome challenges.
