I Joined the Green Party in 2000 and catapulted into seemingly non-stop outreach and activism! Myself and a colleague have been dubbed the "tabling queens" of our local. The last 5 years I have served on the elected steering committee of my local, the Los Angeles (City) Greens, as the Volunteer Coordinator.

I'm a member of GROW and participate consistently online in the Campaigns/Candidates and Media Working Groups and have been a delegate at several state plenaries and gatherings.

Lead organizer of the 2004 Los Angeles Greens Women's History Month event: Petra Kelly's Legacy, with guest speaker Clare Greensfelder. Assisted in organizing the Los Angeles Greens Earth Day 2005 event with guest speaker Rex Weyler, cofounder of Greenpeace International; and the Los Angeles Greens Earth Day 2006 Biofuels event.

Volunteer on campaigns: City Council Campaigns of Denise Munro Robb and Derek Milosavljevic, Sara Amir, Peter Camejo, Peter Thottam for Assembly. On Staff of Byron De Lear for Congress, 2006.

I bring a decade of experience in the non-profit sector, as Membership Coordinator and Training Director of a large community organization, the Los Angeles Macintosh Group.

Provided database support on union campaigns: Organization of Los Angeles Workers, American Federation of Teachers College Guild, and L.A. County Federation of Labor. City of Los Angeles and Los Angeles County Registrar intermittent employee administering Early Touchscreen Voting. (Yes, it is good to have a Green in there as an employee and watching!)

I would like to assist California in making good decisions at the national level and ask for your support.
