I am the Parma Ward 1 Council Person having been appointed to this position February, 2023 and I am thrilled to be able to represent our citizens.
As a Parma resident for over 30 years, I know the value of this city council position and the creation of meaningful policy and public engagement that applies to the vast diversity of its residents. Our unique perspectives, experiences and ideas when harnessed collectively, create opportunity for an inclusive and productive society.
Growing up in a working class, union, Democratic household has prepared me for this opportunity to address those of us that face adversity with personal struggles, that include food, utility and housing concerns. With the values instilled by my mother and father including their guidance and support, I persevered. It is this experience that I know has prepared me to assist my fellow Parma residents.
Upon moving to Ohio, I utilized my BS and MS Chemical Engineering degrees in the Paints and Coatings industry, and am currently a Global Product Manager, a position that requires an advanced level of expertise and the proficiency to work across languages and cultures to successfully manage global multimillion-dollar projects. This corporate experience and aptitude to work with people from all backgrounds, positions me as a qualified representative to make the right decisions for our citizens. I listen and act to resolve problems and implement solutions that will address the issues for everyone’s benefits, especially our most vulnerable citizens.
My personal motto is that there is nothing more important on earth than a human being. All people must be at the table to create a better community. I’m responsive, I care and I want to remain the voice of Ward 1, Parma, Ohio.
