There is a publicly elected Board of Directors consisting of five members serving four-year terms. The Board of Directors serve without compensation. While the directors could receive pay for the work they do, over the years they have rejected that idea. In order to broaden the base of local government, the Board has appointed a Fire Commission and a Parks and Recreation Commission. Members of the Commissions are appointed for two-year terms by the CSD Board.
I have been a resident of Marinwood since 2005. I served on the Park and Rec Commission from 2006-2009 and my first term on the CSD board from 2009-2013. I am a business owner and proud mother of 2 amazing young leaders, one in 4th grade at Mary Silveira and the other in pre-school.
I earned a Bachelor's degree from UCLA in poetry and an MBA from the University of San Francisco in management. Service work has always been a passion, starting with student council in high school, the Peace Corps after college, and now here, in this community we are all blessed to share and call home.
Where business and service intersect: what are ways of improving the long-term fiscal health of the district without cutting services? I am well versed on the current issues facing our community and have an excellent working relationship with all parties involved. My goal is to share my business experience and insights with the community and at the same time learn ways to improve how I run my business.
Board Term: Dec. 2015-Nov. 2020
