Community Engagement / Business Development Coordinator

Santa Cruz County has many communities. But many communities here are rarely heard or covered by local media, except when problems occur.

I help our newsroom tell more accurate and full stories about what Santa Cruz County residents want and need. I do this by asking and listening to residents about their concerns, their goals and their information needs. We seek people who are most affected by our county’s biggest issues, such as housing and homelessness.

By giving you the information you need, our goal is to make our journalism more useful to you.

As Santa Cruz Local’s Business Development Coordinator, I also help our readers and listeners become Santa Cruz Local members and answer their membership questions.

I was born and raised in Santa Cruz. I love this place. I live here with my family.
