I have a range of strengths and draw on multiple perspectives to deliver needed change and advancement. Through the years, I have been CEO and founder of profit and nonprofit companies in addition to an advocate of public policy changes, a government employee, a union leader for public workers, and a police officer. These roles give me a deep understanding of government, community issues, and workers’ rights. I know how to get things done right while breaking down barriers and fostering bipartisan collaboration.
With an accomplished career trajectory, I have led statewide initiatives in partnership with diverse stakeholders, leveraged innovative technology to empower citizens and give them a sense of civic ownership, and led the fiscal reform necessary to lead a city through economic uncertainly and recession. I actively participated in the design, negotiations, and legislative drafting of extremely successful bipartisan reforms.
I am a game changer within my organizations and a highly sought-out board member. I break down barriers, cultivate change, and form the needed strategies to foster forward movement. I tackle challenges head-on, and have built a reputation for honesty, integrity, and accountability. Focused on my teams and resources, I am an innate motivator and coach combining business acumen with innovation and cultural awareness with action around a shared vision.
