I am a 5th generation Venetian looking forward to serving you for a second term on the VNC, this time as Communications Officer. I am an Indigenous spiritual organizer and a successful web designer & internet marketer for local family law firms and youth oriented non-profits.
As the only active person of color on the VNC I have put the people first and have firmly advocated for true diversity and accountability from our city leaders and institutions. I created a successful motion to release the Brendon Glenn video as well as led Venice to adopt and celebrate Indigenous People’s Day, a motion which inspired the current L.A. City Council to consider adopting the holiday citywide.
Not only am I qualified for the Communications tasks, I bring the unique dynamic of representing the experience and perspectives of 5 generations of Venetians into the decision making process of our community. It is a dynamic that is very necessary especially in times of diminishing diversity in Venice. I will continue to breakdown the obstacles toward building a positive sense of community for ALL residents in Venice.
As a Venice resident, wife, and mother I believe that all voices in our community need to be heard. In my time working in Venice with our unhoused citizens I realize that it’s critical to assist and support all residents who are at risk of displacement from exorbitant development. It has encouraged me to run and continue working toward practical solutions which benefit everyone. I also feel the VNC lacks diversity, by voting for me you will help ensure that the Venice Neighborhood Council has an ideal representative in a time of diminishing diversity.
