Bringing your values to City Council
I ran for office to ensure environmental responsibility for housing and transit projects, to maintain our roads, to ensure that city services such as new fire stations are brought to our region, and to address our nation's issue of homelessness. I am pro-choice, I believe that Austin can be a leader in gun safety reform, and I believe the corporations moving here must pay their fair share.

I hold a Bachelor's degree in Sociology from the University of Texas at San Antonio, and my professional background includes working for a consulting firm that ensures environmental responsibility for housing and transportation projects.
