I am a Northern California native (go Giants!) and a 12+ year resident of Piedmont. I have three children, one at Beach Elementary and two at Piedmont Middle School, and all are active in youth sports and recreation. I am currently on the Piedmont Baseball Foundation board of directors where I serve as the Pony Division Commissioner and the web director. I also manage the websites for the Beach Parents Organization (BPO), and Piedmont Girls Softball. I am currently coaching a girls U10 softball team. I have also coached boys and girls softball, baseball, tee ball, and girls basketball.

My children have participated in numerous day camps, clinics, and sports offered by the Piedmont Recreation department. Currently I have two playing basketball for PMS. I also coached all three in tee ball. I have also played on a Piedmont Rec softball team for the last nine seasons. I am a bicycle commuter and hope to see more Piedmonters riding their bikes to work and for local errands.
