I care about our quality of life and I believe that you care, too. I am certain that many of us want to be involved, but few of us know how we can best use our skills and experiences to keep Maple Valley a community worthy of our numerous accolades as a great place to raise a family. I began my local involvement in a variety of small and important ways. I started co-leading Girl Scout Troop 52864, volunteering at Rock Creek Elementary School, with Washington Trails Association at Taylor and Tiger Mountain State parks, and Maple Valley Make a Difference Days. As I got to know a little more about the opportunities, I put my education to work as I served on Maple Valley’s Planning Commission and as Liaison to Library Advisory Board. I left the position of Planning Commission Chair only because I was honored to have been able to help out by filling a council seat from 2010-2011.
I will continue working hard to help Maple Valley earn a reputation as a livable, walkable, bicycle friendly community, with a variety of gathering places. I firmly believe these aspects are strongly tied to public safety as well as physical well-being and economic health. Handled well, and working together, we can create an identity that represents and resonates with each of us.
I am eager to hear from you and work with you to shape our community.
