As a mother nothing means more to me than the wellbeing of my child. I will do whatever it takes to ensure that my child, and every child, possess the building blocks they need to succeed.

Breaking barriers,
building futures.

Access to a good education should be a human right, yet for many SF families they feel they are left behind in receiving a quality education. Now more than ever, we need leaders who will be relentless and determined that ALL San Francisco children thrive and succeed. 

 
 
 

Today’s students.
Tomorrow’s leaders.

The San Francisco/Bay Area is home to many thriving and innovative industries. I want to ensure that our SFUSD students are prepared to be the leaders of tomorrow. That is why I am dedicated to ensuring that every child has a STRONG START. Our future literally depends on it.

Dedicated to change.

As an organizer, a community activist, a Commissioner, and a mother I am dedicated to fighting for our community. As the former Campaign Manager for Prop V (2016 Soda Tax) I helped bring in $15 million dollars in additional revenue to fight Type 2 Diabetes and Heart Disease in San Francisco. As the Coordinator for the San Francisco Latino Parity and Equity Coalition, I advocated and helped bring in $800,000 net new dollars as an investment to the Latino community in 2017. As a Commissioner, I am dedicated to building multicultural coalitions and unity here in San Francisco, because we are all fighting for the same things and can accomplish more together than we can apart.
