Greetings to my fellow Coastal San Pedro Stakeholders. I have had the pleasure of serving on our Neighborhood Council for the first time this passed year and was elected to the position of Secretary my first day on the Board. My first year on the Board has been fascinating, challenging, enlightening, but most of all has brought me a renewed sense of hope and optimism that local grass-roots politics can and does make a difference. Now that I have a ”training” year under my belt, I would love to continue on the Board and to bring the voice of my neighbors and local business owners to our meetings. I want to be a part of creating solutions to the issues that impede the economic progress and vitality of our community. For those of you who are unfamiliar with my background, I have lived in San Pedro for 8 years. I am a small business owner with a B.A. in Political Science from USC, a DDS degree from UCLA and an MBA in Health Care Administration. I hope to utilize my knowledge and experience to serve our stakeholders and help make San Pedro the best place to work, live and play in Los Angeles. Thank you for your support.
