"I am grateful for the opportunity to serve the residents of Yorba Linda as your Mayor. An Orange County native, I have lived in Yorba Linda since 2004 and am a local business owner of a successful medical practice in Yorba Linda since 2006. In addition, I worked as an Assistant Clinical Professor at University of California, Irvine in the Graduate Nurse Practitioner program until that program was dissolved in 2018. Before serving on the City Council, my political experience came from leading two very important non-profit organizations concerned with the welfare of people and communities. With over a decade of leadership experience at both state and local levels I know what it takes to find solutions, navigate complicated regulatory agencies, and get things done. "
