I have spent the last decade deeply investing my time in the Longmont and Boulder County communities. From serving on nonprofit Boards like KGNU Community Radio, to the League of Women Voters, to supporting racial equity work with my role at the YWCA of Boulder County, my commitment to this community is unwaivering.
In addition to the many organizations I work with, I am also a single mother, who has struggled to find affordable housing. When I moved here in 2012, it was difficult; I often filled the financial gaps by working two jobs or earning supplemental income just to make ends meet. Now, when I should be established, when it should be getting easier, it feels just as difficult. I know it feels that way for so many families in Longmont, who I will continue fight for as a Longmont City Councilor.
