I serve on the Los Angeles Chamber's sales team as Business Development Manager. I have more than 14 years’ experience in strategic partnerships, business development and monetization of opportunities.

As Business Improvement District Manager for the Sunset Strip Business Improvement District and the West Hollywood Design District, I have successfully doubled the budget surplus. As an affiliate director on the board of the West Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, I also worked on developing new policies affecting startups and small businesses, which led to the city’s launch of their Small Business Initiative.

As Co-Chair of Next Beverly for the City of Beverly Hills, I've served on the Liaison Committee of young leaders chartered by the Mayor and the City of Beverly Hills to engage residents between the ages of 25-45 through innovative initiatives that address their lifestyle, economic and civic needs, and to inspire them to make Beverly Hills a better place for all.

I have a passion for all initiatives that promote the betterment of humankind, for which the American Lung Association exemplifies; clean and breathable air, fighting lung cancer, and discouraging smoking.

I Wear Turquoise (IWT) is an American Lung Association LUNG FORCE campaign, engaging leaders throughout Southern California.

In American Lung Association’s pursuit to ensure lung health for all, its research funding is hard at work during this outbreak of coronavirus disease (COVID-19). A recent discovery is showing great promise for a potential vaccine. Our lung helpline and website continue to be trusted sources of information and support. Reliable resources, including guidance on how to protect yourself and your family from becoming infected, are available during this unprecedented health threat. It is important that this crucial work continue. We invite you to be a part of the solution and help prevent against future pandemics TODAY.

The American Lung Association's LUNG FORCE launched five years ago, uniting women and their loved ones to stand together and fight lung cancer. Today we invite everyone to join the commitment to lung health and for clean, healthy and livable communities for all. Leaders from throughout Southern California have joined us to become IWT Ambassadors to lead the charge toward a cleaner, healthier future.


My individual goal is to raise $1,000 for the American Lung Association. However, together, with the efforts of all our Ambassadors and the generosity of supporters like you, we are trying to raise $50,000 to help ensure their mission stays strong, including OVERCOMING COVID-19 and preventing future pandemics like this! We are stronger together! To “meet” the other Ambassadors and check out how we are making an impact as a whole AMERICAN LUNG ASSOCIATION: I WEAR TURQUOISE. Please support today!
