Statement

I would like to have the opportunity to impact the state for the next decade. I believe that this commission ensure our democracy by playing a vital role in a fair and free election. I believe that my level-headed nature and analytical thinking can help work with a diverse group towards the best interests of all Coloradans.

Statement on Working with Consensus

I believe that I have always been the level-headed voice of reason in my professional life. I think that I take my time to listen and understand others' points of view before giving my opinion. I think gives me the personality to be able to work with people of different opinions to ensure that the best solution is found for everyone.

Relevant Analytic Skills for Commission

I have worked professionally in an environmental where my own data and reporting informs decisions that are made with regards to health & safety. I feel that I am strongly suited to look at data and use logical reasoning to come up with the best solution from that data. I feel that I would be particularly suited to this situation given my critical thinking skills and experience having to find creative solutions to problems. I have also taken graduate level courses in GIS, which has given me an understanding of mapping. I believe this will be another invaluable skill for the commission.
