MEET TERESA 

A Dynamic Leader for Carlsbad

Friends, neighbors, colleagues –

I love Carlsbad. I love this beautiful, welcoming, family-oriented community. Even after a fun family vacation or an exciting work trip, I am always glad to return home.  Passion and pride for Carlsbad inspire me to do more.

I raised my daughter here, run my own business, and actively support the work of multiple local non-profit organizations. With these perspectives on our community I found myself asking, “What more can I do for Carlsbad? How can I use the skills and experiences I have to help shape the future of this city?"

The answer is simple: run for Carlsbad City Council.

Between now and November 3, 2020, my goal is to get to know you better, to listen, and to understand your priorities, so I can earn your support. As we get to know each other, I hope you decide that I will be your best representative on the Carlsbad City Council.

I invite you read about my background and policy interests on this website. Please connect with me and stay engaged with the campaign. Together we can ensure the City of Carlsbad has the experience, skills, and perspective to lead us in the right direction.
