1. What is your favorite spot in L.A.?
There are so many places I can list here. As a foodie however, I have to say that Dome Pochana in Sylmar has some of the best Thai food in the city. It's not too fancy but just right when you want to have good night eating out.
2. What is your top priority for the East Valley?
It is my hope to bridge city resources to provide top-notch constituent service to the East Valley area and to collaborate closely with communities so that residents feel they're concerns are being heard and acted upon.
3. What is one fun fact that you'd like your constituents to know about you?
I love to cook. It's my dream to have a kitchen in my house just like the one they have on the Food Network.
