Accomplishments & Goals

I have lived in Grantsville with my husband and three children since 2001. In 2015, I was elected to serve a four-year term on the Grantsville City Council. I would love to continue working hard for our city. 

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. It's a great place to raise a family.

I have a bachelor's degree in English from Utah State University and worked as a freelance journalist for two decades. As a small business owner, I oversee life story projects, and I'm also a 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 would appreciate your support. Register to vote 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 revived 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.



Build on the General Plan to preserve our city as a great place to live, work and play.


Promote opportunities in Grantsville for current and future generations.


Preserve  transparency and ensure fiscal responsibility in our local government. 



I would love to hear from you.
