My husband of 25 years, and I have loved making Snoqualmie a home for our twin daughters for the past 17 years. Our twin daughters started kindergarten here and graduated from Mount Si High School. During this time, I volunteered in our schools, Snoqualmie city committees and non-profit organizations in the Valley. Serving our community has allowed me to be engaged in strategic planning, fiscal oversight, and governance.
As a business professional, I worked for Fortune 500 Companies for close to 20 years. As an internal operations auditor for PACCAR, I took a business approach to streamlining departmental processes, evaluating and implementing internal controls. As a purchasing manager for PACCAR and Esterline Technologies, I negotiated, implemented and monitored long-term, multi-million dollar supply contracts; prepared and managed operating and capital budgets; and supervised purchasing and materials departments.
My Snoqualmie councilmember experience, professional career, community service, and education have prepared me to be an effective Mayor for the City of Snoqualmie. I will apply my extensive experience to fiscal accountability, strategic planning, and implementing policies that benefit our community.
