As a regional leader, why is economic development important to you?

Economic development is crucial to the strategic growth of a community focusing on improving the economic well-being and quality of life for the community where we live and work. We have a responsibility to foster a community where our employees and businesses can thrive.

What excites you most about being part of GSEC?

I am most excited about the forward thinking and innovative approach that we are taking to position the Greater Sacramento area for sustainable and exciting growth. I love being actively involved in shaping the future of our community.

What do you like most about living and doing business in the Greater Sacramento region?

Sacramento is an amazing place to live and do business due to its convenient location making the mountains, beach and wine country only a short drive away. Combine that with a thriving local economy that is poised to continue growth in a strategic manner. And, who can forget….the Sacramento KINGS!
