After growing up on both coasts, I graduated with a degree in electrical engineering from UC/Berkeley.  Recently retired, I have worked as an electrician, power system engineer, power plant operator, consultant, and field application engineer.

I have run for State Representative in Oregon as well as US Congress, and have always volunteered to serve the communities I have lived in.  I have been a mentor at Jackson Street Youth Shelter and CASA advocate, and served as a volunteer firefighter for the Rural Fire District in Gates, OR when I lived there.  After moving to Corvallis, I served as a volunteer firefighter with Corvallis Fire Department for a short time but then realized my firefighting days were over.  Wanting to still contribute to the Rural Fire District I lived in, I began attending Board meetings for the CRFPD.  I was first elected as a Director in 2013, and have served on the Board since then.  I am currently Secretary of the CRFPD, and am concentrating on projects to increase the resilience of Locke Fire Station in the event of natural disasters.
