I grew up in the small town of Paradise which was ravaged last fall by the destructive Camp Fire—my parents and many of my friends lost everything. I watched the community where I grew up burn down. This life-changing experience motivated me to become more involved and protect what I love. Our life experiences are precious, especially for our children, and I want their development in Gig Harbor to be the best we have to offer.
My family and I love our harbor and want to see its critical history preserved, while modernizing our services to the community. In addition, I will focus on promoting transparency and protecting the families of Gig Harbor.
