Laguna Niguel is a remarkable city. This didn't happen by accident. I will honor the efforts of those who built this city and will passionately protect and defend the quality of life we have come to enjoy in Laguna Niguel.
I'm a wife, mother, small business owner, attorney, and employer. My husband, Ray, and I have been married for over 20 years. We met while attending college at UC Irvine. I later attended law school and am currently a practicing member of the California Bar. I've also attended Pepperdine University's internationally recognized Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution and have utilized my mediation skills volunteering as a Mediator for the Orange County Superior Court.
Knowing that Laguna Niguel was where we wanted to raise a family, Ray and I moved to Laguna Niguel in 2009. Later that same year I opened my law firm and joined the Laguna Niguel Chamber of Commerce.
Since moving to Laguna Niguel, I have learned to operate a small business, hire and train employees, and cultivate leadership skills. Gratified by helping others succeed, I mentor young women and emerging entrepreneurs help develop skills and access the resources needed to grow.
Conveying the importance of service to others extends to the next generation, and I'm active in our son's Cub Scout Pack and have developed a particular fondness for the Pinewood Derby.
"Be the change you wish to see in the world" is more than just a saying. It's a call to action.
For over a decade, I have been a contributing member, volunteer, and leader in Laguna Niguel. Through my community involvement, I work to ensure that Laguna Niguel remains the safe and charming city that drew my husband and I to it.
Examples of my service to Laguna Niguel include:
A doer and a leader, I have been repeatedly recognized for my leadership skills. Examples include:
