for north tahoe pud

I am excited about the opportunity to represent my community’s recreational and water quality interests on the North Tahoe PUD board. I am engaged and established in our community and hope to continue to provide positive investments that meet the needs of our residents, businesses, and our treasured natural resources.


I have worked on water quality, restoration, recreation, technology, and transportation projects in the Tahoe Basin for over 15 years. As both a professional and a resident, I value a balance of our limited resources and seek solutions to optimize those resources now and into the future to assure that the health, well-being, and resiliency of our community is established through our infrastructure investments. 


I previously served on the Boards of the Tahoe Resource Conservation District and Sugar Pine Foundation and have a Masters of Science in Geology, with a focus on water quality. My current experience in large-scale infrastructure projects in the Tahoe Basin allows a unique understanding of project implementation, operations, fiscal management, and how to work with regional partners to implement priority projects in a cost-effective and environmentally sound manner.


I am the right candidate to represent you in North Tahoe, your support is greatly appreciated.
