As long time resident, civic volunteer and business owner on Mercer Island, I have worked to connect and advocate for the local business community. Currently I serve on the Art Commission and Chamber Board and hope to further connect the art community to the businesses and residents of Mercer Island through town center art spaces, events and activities.
