Engineer, Marketing Executive, Organizer, Lover of the Outdoors
The Courage to Fight
Throughout her long career in healthcare, Chris saw drugs come to market that truly saved lives. She also saw that many who needed them simply couldn't afford them. The inequity is staggering. She left the business world to stand up to this and to fix it.
Today, we need political courage to stand up to the people who are defending the status quo to protect their own interests and putting everyday working people last. We can protect our natural spaces and make it possible for people to thrive. But in order to do that, in order for things to get better for everyone, we need fundamental change in the way our district is represented.
The Experience to Win
Chris can bring the change we need. She has worked in partnership to make communities better, first as a trustee of Temple Israel of Hollywood and then as co-founder of HODG (HangOutDoGood), a grassroots community of hundreds of volunteers. She has dedicated herself to challenges from protecting our healthcare to standing up against climate change and for prison reform. Chris knows firsthand that we can affect change on these issues because she’s helped do it.
Chris has lived in California for nearly 30 years and has been married to her husband David for 20 years. They have two teenage children, Sam and Ellie and share their lives with two dogs and a cat. They are lovers of the outdoors and active with Disabled Sports Eastern Sierra and the Sierra Club.
