Enhancing our Town's Infrastructure
It’s crucial for the wellbeing of our community to modernize and maintain our infrastructure, encompassing roads, sidewalks and public facilities, to accommodate our needs today and in the future. The current state of our streets requires smart, strategic repairs that involve and consider the entire community. Let’s work together to ensure our infrastructure is robust and reliable for everyone.
Promoting Economic Growth and Community Vitality
Attracting new families to our community will invigorate our economy and enrich our educational landscape. Their active participation will foster stronger community engagement, bring fresh perspectives, and contribute to our diversity, ensuring long-term stability and promoting a vibrant, healthy lifestyle. Families will support our small businesses and create an environment for new businesses to emerge and thrive.
Balancing Responsible Development with Preservation
Finding the right balance between thoughtful development and preserving our open spaces, landscapes, and unique charm of Fountain Hills is a responsibility I take to heart. I aim to uphold the beauty and environmental quality of our area, including our cherished dark skies. At the same time, I am committed to supporting well-planned development that benefits our community as a whole and grow responsibly.
I was drawn to Fountain Hills for its peaceful yet conveniently located community, and my husband and I made Fountain Hills our permanent home in December of 2015.
In this town I’ve met diverse, passionate individuals, united in volunteer projects that enhance our community’s vitality and have enjoyed working alongside them in a variety of ways. My involvement with the Fountain Hills Dark Sky Association and the International Dark Sky Discovery Center has broadened my understanding of our town’s distinct dark sky advantage and allowed me to collaborate with a variety of talented and motivated individuals. In my role as Secretary of Fountain Hills Sister Cities, I’ve had the enriching opportunity to assist with international student exchanges, fostering a cultural exchange in our town. I’ve also engaged with various non-profit organizations, including Sunset Kiwanis, Vision Fountain Hills, and the Fountain Hills Community Foundation, where I’ve focused on serving our community.
Participating in the Fountain Hills Leadership Academy was another pivotal experience in learning about local government, civic services, public safety, and environmental management, equipping me with skills to effect positive change in our town.
My appointment to the town’s Planning & Zoning Commission* in 2019 has been a significant milestone, allowing me to influence decisions regarding planning, development, and environmental conservation, ensuring the protection of our unique desert landscape. Moreover, as a member of the Board of Directors of the Fountain Hills Sanitary District*, I’ve played a pivotal role in managing essential services like wastewater collection and treatment, contributing to the overall sustainability and health of our community.
*I currently serve on both the Fountain Hills Planning & Zoning Commission and the Fountain Hills Sanitary District.
