I started my career at City of Visalia after completing a degree in Plant Science at CSU Fresno. Soon after being hired, I was drawing construction plans and preparing bids for park development projects. I passed the Landscape Architects licensing exam and learned grant writing, bringing in millions of dollars for projects as staff at City of Visalia and City of Tulare.
I served terms on the Visalia Unified School District Board and on Visalia City Council and was privileged to serve one year as a State Senate Fellow in Sacramento.
