My family (Melora, Kamryn and Jenna) and I have lived in Mar Vista since 1995. I am currently the Chair of the Mar Vista Community Council, and Civilian Co-Chair of the Pacific Los Angeles Police Department's Community Police Advisory Board and have served on both the MVCC and MVNA in a variety of positions. I hope to further develop the block captain and neighborhood watch programs in Mar Vista. I believe MVNA can be an important catalyst in making Mar Vista a safer and more caring and welcoming community. I hope to help the association figure out ways we can encourage greater community involvement and participation.
