My life has always been about serving and caring for people.  I am a Retired US Army Nurse with over 30 years of Management, Project Management, Contract Negotiations and Labor Rights experience.

I have worked for ATU Local 1576 as a Shop Steward, 2 terms on the Safety Committee and Executive Board before taking on the role of Recording Secretary. 

During my time at Community Transit, I have been active in fighting for our rights. I Grieved, and won for the entire membership, the right to keep our Reliability Award when Road Relieved for an emergency.  I spent my own time fighting for the Class Action Lawsuit resulting in a $1.1M settlement that resulted in Drivers getting reimbursed for unpaid wages.
