Accomplishments & Goals

I am running for re-election to Grantsville City Council  for another four-year term because I care about our community and want to keep it a great place to live, recreate, and raise families. I grew up in a big city in the Philippines and became a US citizen in 1997. After we moved to Grantsville, I fell in love with its rural charm and traditions. 

I have a bachelor's degree in English from Utah State University. For two decades, I worked as a journalist. As a small business owner, I oversee life story projects, and I'm also a full-time, published author

I've volunteered with the Tooele County Chamber of Commerce, Grantsville Sociable, the PTA, schools, my church, and co-founded No Prison in Tooele County. 

I am grateful for the chance to serve these past 4 years and would appreciate your continued support.  Need to register to vote? Register here


Charted a Plan


In 2018, I helped secure a $66k grant and served on the steering committee to revise the Grantsville general plan. The general plan will chart our city's path as we continue to grow.

Championed our Heritage


In 2016, I re-established the Grantsville Historic Preservation Commission. The Commission has helped champion and preserve gems like the Donner Reed Museum, and produced a book of historic sites.

Connected with Citizens


I enjoy connecting with citizens and regularly post city updates on my Facebook page. I actively represent Grantsville in the county and state, as well as the Utah League of Cities & Towns and on its board.




I would love to hear from you.
