dedicated to Community Service
I was born in New Orleans, LA and after graduating from high school, I followed in my father’s footsteps and enlisted in the armed forces. I served as a Corpsman in the Navy for 20 years. During my military career I had the privilege to serve with Marine Corps units during the L.A. Riots, Counter Drug Operations on the southern border, response during Hurricanes Katrina and Rita in New Orleans, and deploy to Iraq during Operation Iraqi freedom. My family and I moved to Lake Stevens in 2009 and I retired from the Navy in 2011 having faithfully served our great nation for 20 years.
I wanted to continue serving the community that made my family and I feel welcomed and supported and was eventually hired as a medical practice manager in the community health sector.
I was a practice manager for nearly five years having successfully managed medical and dental practices serving some of our community’s most vulnerable populations.
In 2016, I had the opportunity to transition into Public Health Emergency Preparedness, working collaboratively with healthcare agencies across five counties to plan for large scale natural, man-made, and technological disasters and emergencies. In 2017 I was promoted to Administrative Services Director, where I oversee the agency’s administrative operations.
In 2017 Lake Stevens created the State’s first municipal Veterans Commission and I was honored to be appointed as one of its original commissioners. We continue to seek out opportunities and partnerships to benefit all citizens of Lake Stevens.
