I am a wife, mother, former law enforcement officer and longtime resident and community leader here in District 1.
Denton has been my only home of choice; raising me into the person I am today. This town has equipped me with the temperament and vision to serve the people who reside here; longing for the chance to give back an ounce of what was instilled in me.
Texas Woman’s University molded me into the Pioneer woman that I am. And now, I take bold action to serve my neighbors as an internal champion for my district, my community and future constituents to come.
Let’s strengthen the core together.
“Unity happens when we discover the core of strength within us.”
District 1 is the most diverse district in the city. It is home to the downtown business community, the judicial community, city agencies, county agencies, and state agencies. There are new and established residential neighborhoods, the mall, the state university, senior care facilities, non-profits, the homeless and high value homes. The district is the CORE of the City and all the people that live, work, and play here, simply want to be safe, profitable and secure.
I want to help STRENGTHEN THE CORE.

As a small business owner, I believe that a sustainable economy in the long-term requires an investment in our small local businesses. I pledge to work with other council members and the administration to promote economic development and improvement in the commercial and residential areas of our city.
Justice and equality
As a former Law Enforcement Officer, making sure that justice remains blind, supporting the Denton Police Department and the public, is important to me. Every member of our community is valuable and deserves equal access to a safe and secure community.
Infrastructure and services
As a 38-year resident, I believe a good government is one that understands its duty to all citizens. The infrastructure is the backbone of a city’s foundation. This is surely a priority. I will speak for those who feel they have no voice in their own community and its future. I support citizen groups that lobby to improve their neighborhoods and make the core of our city a better place to live, work and play.
If you have an issue you’d like to bring to my attention, or you have any questions about my campaign, please don’t hesitate to drop me a line! I will get back to you as soon as I can.
