I was raised here on the coast and returned in 2015 with my husband Mikael, who was born in Fort Bragg, to raise our children.
Upon our return we purchased the Golden West Saloon with partners and have spent the last three years working to revitalize the building and business. We also recently opened The Fort Bragg General Store as well as starting a collaborative design space 'The Blue Collective' with other local designers/artists.
I am a textile designer by trade and continue to support my family in large part with remote work in the women's fashion industry. I studied fine art at UCSC and Academia Di Belle Arti in Bologna, Italy. I also studied visual communications at FIDM in Los Angeles where my husband and I lived for 10 years and our first child was born.
I have two children, Caspar 6yrs and Magnolia 1.5yrs. They're both creative, bold, hilarious little people who keep me on my toes and laughing more than crying. It's incredible to raise my children in this community and they compel me to invest in and safeguard the future of our town.
This is such an exciting time for Fort Bragg. Between the mill site, new infrastructure and a changing global job arena, we have the opportunity to effect and guide our city's growth. It would be my honor to serve on the Fort Bragg City Council.
