Background community video I shot and edited together for the Neighborhood Council website.

In 2014, I decided to become an active participant in my community and ran for a board seat on the Woodland Hills-Warner Center Neighborhood Council. I love where I live but saw a need for the Los Angeles City Government to be more responsive to local needs. I was elected to serve my community and brought my communication and marketing skills to the all-volunteer board. 

Neighborhood Councils are city-certified and create events and programs that respond to the unique needs of their community and advocating for issues such as public safety, homelessness, development planning and infrastructure, economic development and the creation of safe spaces for women and children to name a few. Some of the events I organized include:


I was unanimously elected by the board to serve as  Parliamentarian and made sure the proper guidelines and legal mandates were adhered to. I also Chaired the NC's Education Committee and Co-Chaired the Community Outreach committee.

A major initiative for our board was redesigning and launching a new website to better serve our community. I led the effort to make the new website a central hub where stakeholders would find information on local community events and learn about any issues affecting their neighborhood.


The site had to be attractive and easy for stakeholders of all ages to navigate, and had the added challenge that it had to be easy for our own board members to keep updated. My efforts were highlighted in the NC's yearly newsletter.

Through my work with the Neighborhood Council I have built up solid relationships with our elected City and State leaders, their staff, appointed commissioners, business groups, business leaders and the LAPD.

One of five Certificates of Recognition I've received from L.A. City Council for my contributions to the community.

At the core of a strong community is a healthy and vibrant public school system. Las Virgenes Unified School District (LVUSD) is a preschool through high school district headquartered in Calabasas, CA and serves approximately 11,500 students. Three years ago the state of California adopted a new funding model that resulted in LVUSD’s per-pupil funding becoming one of the lowest in the state. The Foundation was formed fill that funding gap and we work with the school district in charitable and fundraising activities in an effort to make sure each child gets the strongest education possible. Last year, The Foundation raised over $250,000 and since its inception, we have raised $2.5 million for our Las Virgenes schools. 


In 2020 I organized and the first of an annual Hold'em Poker Tournament committee, with ticket sales and sponsorships in excess of $25,000+ for the school district. RSVP'd players included local celebrities and elected government leaders and I had brought in major sponsorship, including Uncle Nearest Premium Whiskey.
