Over the past 3.5 years, I have been very committed to my role as a City Councilmember.  I am always well-prepared for meetings, have command of the facts and potential perspectives on the issues, and have been a leader during Council meetings and as Mayor in 2019. 

Having lived in Mountain View for 21 years, I know and appreciate the different neighborhoods.  I have a track record on the Council and on the Environmental Planning Commission of listening to residents, especially when it comes to having new development fit with the character of existing residential neighborhoods.

As a successful executive in the tech industry, I have over 30 years of experience addressing a wide range of complex issues and have managed very large budgets in the hundreds of millions of dollars.  I have expertise in strategic and business planning, line management, as well as financial planning and management.  I have worked at start-ups as well as large companies in the tech industry including FireEye, Symantec, McAfee and HP, and spent 11 years at the leading management consulting firm, McKinsey & Co.  Since being elected to Council in 2016, I’ve worked from time to time as a part-time contractor for tech companies.  My undergraduate and graduate degrees are in business administration.
