Who I am:
Born and raised in Woodland, I have always sought opportunities to assist with making Woodland a better place for us all to live, work and play. I’m honored to have been appointed to represent District 3 and will work with my constituents and fellow Council members to develop innovative and effective solutions to the issues facing our community.
The majority of my professional career was spent as a preschool teacher and parenting educator. I attended Woodland Community College and earned an AA in Early Childhood Education. As the Program Manager for Yolo Connections, I oversaw the Youth Gang Mentorship Program, CPS Parenting Courses, and The Volunteer Connection. I am currently the Executive Director of the Woodland Volunteer Food Closet.
My husband Ray and I have 3 children who have all attended Woodland public schools where they were/are active in sports and community service. Taryn is a graduate of UC Santa Cruz with a degree in Environmental Studies, Nick graduated from Sacramento State College with a degree in Psychology, and Talia is a student at Woodland High School.
