I have been a Douglas County resident (Round Hill) for 18 years. Married to the father of my two children, whom I grew up with and have been childhood sweethearts since the age of 13.

My parents built a home in Jacks Valley 30 years ago, where they retired. I originally grew up in a rural area called Castro Valley in the Bay Area where we had horses and participated in the local rodeo. I then attended Stanford University and was athlete of the year. What I found amazing is the many people I have spoken to in my District who have traveled all over the world, and how they tell me the Lake and Douglas County is the best place.

I realized how fortunate we are. And I believe together we can continue it to be the best.Douglas County Commission District 4
