1.) Please describe your leadership style in three words.

Respectful, Determined, Empathetic

2.) Describe the skills and experience that make you the best candidate for the job.

My professional career in the private healthcare industry has provided me with the opportunity to hone skills in project management, process improvement and leading diverse teams to achieve measurable goals. Being able to work with a variety of stakeholders and bringing groups of people together to achieve a common goal is not easy. I’ve been able to lead successful teams and I believe those skills are essential to identifying the right work, including the right people and getting the job done.

3.) Please list your top three priorities if elected.

Support innovative redevelopment that allows businesses and families to thrivePromote safe and clean neighborhoodsPrioritize engagement with citizens and businesses.

4.) How do you see Northglenn best taking advantage of the economic boom in Metropolitan Denver?

I believe that Northglenn has a unique opportunity to capitalize on the economic boom in Denver because we are a fantastic city with that small-town feel. It’s important to realize that we are competing for new homeowners and we want to build upon the momentum already created to draw those new families to our community. With just a short ride to Denver and quality homes, we already have the basic ingredients for this draw. We need to continue making Northglenn feel as inclusive as possible and build on the community our city was founded on. I believe that expanding transit opportunities is one of our next steps. Remember, the decisions we are making today will define what our city looks like 10 or 20 years from now.

5.) What is the city’s role in encouraging the development of quality housing that is available for affordable costs?

Northglenn is a land locked city, which means there are not many opportunities for us to grow and add to the housing inventory. In the civic center master plan there are some opportunities for a limited supply of housing and I believe a portion of those units should be marked specifically for affordable housing and for our seniors. I also believe that Northglenn needs to take the next steps in encourage accessory dwelling units for our homeowners. Many of us have large lots and when speaking with seniors on this issue, they are excited about the additional opportunity to age in place.
