I have been grateful and honored to have served on the West Hills Neighborhood Council for the last three years. I am originally from Detroit Michigan and a graduate of the University of Michigan. I have been on the West Hills Environmental Committee for almost ten years, finally becoming a WHNC board member. I am highly concerned with both environmental issues, zoning issues and also emergency and homeless problems. I care deeply about West Hills and want to do everything possible to assure that it remains the lovely and family oriented community that it has always been. I am a retired Deputy Probation Officer...Juvenile...for over 35 years, and, as such am always concerned about preventing and dealing with any crime taking place in West Hills. I am also a retired opera singer and am always invested in trying to bring more musical opportunities and performances to our area. I am also a mother of five children, a grandmother to to seven, and a great-grandmother four children. I have also been a Red Cross Disaster volunteer for the past 28 years, and available to serve in a disaster situation.
