“My goal is to be present in the community, an advocate, collaborate with organizations in our community and become more knowledgeable and innovative to work together.
Self-care is very important to me! I love going on weekly hikes throughout California, a new one each week to complete a 2nd 52-week challenge. I enjoy planning camping getaways and going to National Parks. I am also trying to learn a new hobby, last year it was roller skating, this year it is reading.”
