Why do you serve on the board of the SMCF?
Our family loves so many of the activities that SMCF helps make possible: Mt. Wilson Trail Race, Fourth of July festivities, Halloween happenings, and more. They are the things that make Sierra Madre such a great place to call home. I want to help make sure those activities remain supported and successful for my family and future families.
Where else do you volunteer?
I have previously served on the board of the Sierra Madre Community Nursey School, as well as Foster Nation, a non-profit organization aimed at supporting young adults aging out of the foster care system.

Nothing beats some chips and salsa and a large margarita on one of Casa del Rey’s sidewalk table.
