Building a more welcoming, safe, and resilient city for all those who call Medford home. 

For as long as I’ve lived in Medford, I’ve felt safe, welcome, and at home. I'm running for re-election to City Council to continue fighting for policies that will ensure that everyone who lives here can feel the same way. 

 

From a housing un-affordability crisis, to chronically underfunded public schools and public infrastructure, to grappling with our goals on climate change mitigation and resiliency – we must start addressing Medford's issues with the level of urgency that they require. 

I’m seeking a second term so I can continue to advance bold, ambitious goals for Medford to uplift and protect its residents – both right now, and for future generations. 

My Background

I'm a professional illustrator and muralist, renter, cyclist, runner, enthusiastic yet mediocre home cook, volunteer, and a proud resident of South Medford. I was raised in upstate New York, and I graduated from Tufts with honors in 2015 with a degree in Peace & Justice Studies. 

I believe I add needed perspectives to our City Council. I'm a renter, and with over 40% of Medford residents renting their homes, I strongly believe in having more tenants in office. In my day job as a creative professional, I rely on out-of-the-box problem-solving, effective communication, and responsiveness; I try to apply these skills to my work with my fellow Councilors, City staff, and constituents.
