2023 Venice Neighborhood Council Election
As a Venice property owner, resident and community activist since 1968, I am asking for your vote as a VNC At-Large Community Officer.
I will advocate for the rights of property owners, renters and businesses to curb crime and clean up our neighborhoods.
I am passionate about the preservation of the unique qualities that make up the Venice community.
I support moderate growth while keeping the small-town vibe.
Local issues stemming from the over-saturation of our unhoused population in Venice are my primary concerns.
I am against the massive proposed Venice Median Project.
I want to see: a Board devoted to serving our community; all Community Officers participating on a committee; all committees having regular scheduled, open meetings. I would like to see a true spirit of cooperation among the Board members.
I am a current VNC Community Officer and past VNC Treasurer. I am also the Treasurer of the Venice Canals Association and belong to the Venice Chamber of Commerce and on the board Venice Canals Foundation. I am a retired associate real estate broker with The Agency in Venice.

I was born in upstate New York where I grew up. I graduated from Ohio Wesleyan University with a BA in mathematics and economics. Additionally, I attended UCLA School of Design. My late husband Jay and I, along with our son, settled in Venice in the late 1960s. I am a proud owner of a home on the Venice Canals.
Over the years, my career path has been varied … from retailing to publishing, computer systems to real estate. I am a retired associate broker at The Agency in Venice.
My love of Venice comes out in the community service I have been involved with over the years … I served as the Treasurer of the Venice Neighborhood Council from 2005 to 2007 and, since 2019, am on the Board of the VNC as an At-Large Community Officer. I am a current Board Member and Treasurer of the Venice Canals Association, current member and past Board Director of the Venice Chamber of Commerce.
I would like to continue my community service as an At-Large Community Officer of the Venice Neighborhood Council.
