What's Next?

After my unsuccessful bid to become Rochester, MN's next City Council President I had to regroup and figure out what my next move would be. I have a long history of community engagement and organizing. Because of a global pandemic I've had a wonderful opportunity to do some deep self-reflection and consider what I want the next chapter of my life should look like. One, I want to continue to make a difference in my community. Two, I would like to continue to use the momentum that I built with my campaign and keep engaging with my community the best way I know how. Through #goodtrouble and grassroots activism.

I continue to grow and learn in my leadership style and I won't give up on my dreams. I want to do good work in my community and I think the most important thing we can do in our life is serve. I am dedicated to serving my community the best way I know how to do that.

I am open to supporting local campaigns through volunteering my time, talents, and treasure. I provide social media and website management. I have created and written campaign and community engagement training. I have over a decade of experience in diversity, inclusion, and equity work. My resume is vast and my talents are unlimited. I will be fine.


I will keep everyone up to date with what my next move will be. Don't count me out and the next local elections will be in two years. So, let's get fired up and ready to vote for the best candidate in the November 2020 election.

Be well, stay safe, and wear a mask! Keep doing what you are doing and stay amazing.
