As commissioner, my focus has been on protecting the environment, increasing public safety, preserving the City’s history and promoting our unique neighborhoods. I work hard to maintain Hollywood’s character while supporting smart, resilient development along its underutilized commercial corridors.
Since becoming a commissioner in 2018, I have been appointed to the Broward Metropolitan Planning Organization Board, the Broward County Climate Change Task Force, and the Broward County Condominium Structural Issues Committee. I have been recognized as a Florida League of Cities Home Rule Hero, the Broward County School Board Outstanding Mentor of the Year, and am a Hollywood Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) member. I completed the Florida League of Cities Institute for Elected Municipal Officials and received a Certificate of Achievement from the Broward County Leaders Water and Climate Academy.
I currently serve as a mentor to young women students at Hollywood Hills High School through the Women of Tomorrow program. I am also an officer of North Beach Condominium Association and a graduate of Leadership Hollywood. I have held several volunteer leadership positions in the past with Broward Public Schools Partners In Education, the David Posnack JCC and the local chapter of the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation.
I have a degree in civil engineering from the Johns Hopkins University and a law degree from the University of Maryland. I continue in my private law practice which concentrates on representing construction companies and am certified in construction law by The Florida Bar. I have extensive experience in preparing and negotiating construction contracts, as well as risk allocation, insurance and bonding. My husband and I just celebrated our 35th anniversary and raised our family in south Florida.
Make Hollywood a model of environmental sustainability for other coastal cities to emulate, particularly in light of looming sea level rise.
