Campaign Launch Announcement

Dear Friends,

I want you to be among the first to know that I’m running for San Mateo County Assessor-County Clerk-Recorder & Chief Elections Officer in the June 2022 election.

Civic Engagement Drives Political Will

From transparency in property valuations and the tax base and accessibility to public records, to full civic participation in voting and running for elected office, everyone deserves the opportunity to fully participate in decision making. I have been an organizer and advocate working to build bridges between national, state, and local officeholders and the community. As your next Assessor, I am committed to ensuring all voices are heard to build a region accessible to and reflective of the rich diversity of our county.

From birth to marriage, property ownership, and civic engagement in our elections, the Assessor - County Clerk - Recorder & Chief Elections Officer is there for the community at key times in our lives. San Mateo County deserves non-partisan officeholders dedicated to leading with subject matter expertise in overseeing the office’s complex operations; ensuring transparency and accessibility for all.

A Little Bit About Me

Much of my career has been spent negotiating large-scale public sector infrastructure technology projects and working with global start-ups on establishing and growing their U.S. operations. Currently, as the founder and principal consultant at FirstAID Labs, my team and I help area nonprofits forge relationships with the philanthropic world and share best practicesto build capacity in order to better serve all segments of the community.

Born and raised in Fair Lawn, New Jersey, I grew up with a passion for politics and civic engagement working on student council campaigns and local, state, and Federal elections through high school and college. After graduating from The George Washington University with a B.A. in Economics and Japanese Studies, I landed my first job in Tokyo with a global trading conglomerate in project finance.

Calling San Carlos home for over twenty years, I am raising my three children Martin, Jianna, and Sebastian and our rescued paw pal April. In my spare time, I’m active in our community, shuttling among my kids' activities and volunteering with area nonprofits: Peninsula Conflict Resolution Center, One Life Counseling Center, Each Green Corner, and the San Carlos PTA.

Visit my website to learn more about my vision and grassroots campaign. With your help, we will ensure every voice is represented. Thank you!
