Why I'm running

Like any community, I think there are things Lindon could do more of, less of, or differently. I was drawn to run for city council to address concerns residents were sharing with me and to address concerns I have experienced.

I am a community-centric problem solver with an insatiable desire to help things improve. I have been this way as long as I can remember. I have a natural reflex to engage and contribute whatever talents I have to the betterment of my community. I am energized by service, and I try to give back wherever I find myself.

I am a deep listener, relationship cultivator, bridge builder, citizen advocator, and common sense problem solver who loves Lindon and wants to see it thrive for generations to come.
