I moved to Aurora in 1979 and in 1982 married Andris, an immigrant from Latvia. We are blessed to have five children, two son-in-laws and two dogs, David and Goliath. We’ve always lived in Ward 3, have a small business in Ward 3 and go to church here. Our children have studied in public schools, charter schools, private schools, video school and homeschool.
I received a B.S. degree in Economics and Business Administration from the University of Alabama and Park College, graduating Magna Cum Laude. I’ve held numerous other jobs which include Electrical Contractor, Airline Customer Service, Human Resource Manager, Real Estate and Property Management and Retail and Accounting Clerk. My life has always been filled with volunteer work in schools, church and I served 7 years on Boards and Commissions for the city before City Council.
