Last week I registered with the City Clerk to officially become a candidate for city council in Redwood City. I look forward to working hard to earn your vote in the November 2018 election.
My parents chose to raise my two younger sisters and me in Redwood City for its affordability, its safe and supportive neighborhoods, and its high-performing public schools. I was fortunate to return to Redwood City soon after graduating from college to start a life of my own in the town I’ve called home my whole life.
I returned to a familiar City that is thriving, with a vibrant downtown that’s home to new businesses and residents, a strong local economy, cultural arts and entertainment, and a diversity of people that make it the best community on the Peninsula.
Redwood City is faced with new challenges, but we’ve always been a community that tackles them together.
This election is a pivotal moment for our City. It’s an election that will determine how we move forward as a community, and it’s a moment that requires thoughtful and collaborative leadership among and across all neighborhoods and generations.
I pledge to bring close to a decade of experience in local government and deep community roots to the table on behalf of you, your family, and your neighbors.
Together we will develop solutions for how we can continue to preserve Redwood City’s enviable quality of life and ensure that we all have a place to call home.
I love Redwood City and I am humbled at the chance to serve this community at city hall if I am elected this November.

I'm thrilled and honored to announce that I have accepted the position of Executive Director of the Redwood City Education Foundation - RCEF, an organization I've been proud to serve as a board member for the past four years. Founded in 1983 to prevent cuts to critical in-school programs, RCEF raises funds to support the Redwood City School District's budget.
There are many reasons why I decided to step into this role at this particular moment in the organization’s history and in my own personal and professional development, and I plan to share more in the coming weeks and months.
But for now I simply want to express my sincere gratitude to the Board of Directors for your faith in my leadership and your commitment to our shared vision for the organization, as well as the former board members and volunteers whose work shaped my life as an RCSD alum in truly profound ways.
Of course this announcement is bittersweet, as my second tour of duty at Stanford comes to a close. It's been an honor and welcomed professional challenge to work for an organization with such vast and deep global influence, and to leverage that influence to make a positive impact here in our local communities. To give back to Stanford has been wonderfully gratifying.
There's much more to say in due time, and I look forward to engaging my community in a conversation about our organization's future and direction. I'm deeply grateful for this opportunity.
I invite you to consider making a tax-deductible contribution to RCEF to help me celebrate my new role! ... See MoreSee Less
