I'M A BUSINESSWOMAN, MOM AND PROUD TUCSONAN.
I helped lead the revitalization of downtown. Now I want to help the rest of our city thrive.
WITH MY EXPERIENCE, SKILLS AND FIERCE DETERMINATION WE CAN MAKE IT HAPPEN TOGETHER.
I’ve loved Tucson from the first time I visited and knew this is where I wanted to raise a family and build a home, business and life. After Rob and I got engaged nearly two decades ago, I moved here from New York City where I had a successful career in advertising and global branding. We moved right into downtown Tucson, and I immediately got to work having a positive impact on our community.
MY DAUGHTER SKYE AND I AT THE ICEHOUSE LOFTS, THEN AND NOW.
Rob and I and our partners developed the Ice House Lofts, Arizona’s first residential loft conversion in 2002, well before Downtown Tucson’s revitalization. People thought we were crazy, but we had the vision to see what our city center could become: a place that blended the old with the new and celebrated what made Tucson unique.
Rob and I went on to form our own company, R+R Develop, and developed more innovative projects like Barrio Metalico, 990 Offices, indigoMODERN and The Trinity (in progress). All of our projects are sustainable and infill, prioritizing sustainable technology and adaptive reuse. Working extensively with the neighborhood, we always make sure our projects enhance the neighborhood to keep its character and culture.
DOWNTOWN HAS BECOME A VIBRANT CITY CENTER THAT ELEVATES ALL OF TUCSON
I have worked hard to have a positive impact on our community through my work as the Chairwoman of the Downtown Tucson Partnership and President of the Museum of Contemporary Art. I have always strived to make downtown Tucson a place that blends the old with the new, celebrates what makes Tucson unique and be the place where people of all ages want to live, work and play. Now I want us to take that same vision and energy and find opportunities throughout Tucson.
THERE’S NOWHERE ELSE I’D RATHER BUILD A FAMILY AND LIFE.
Our Mayor must both lead with vision and have the ability to connect and collaborate. That is what I do every day and that is how together we will define a bold path to move Tucson forward. From the Ice House to MOCA to our business and downtown - with everything I am involved in I set a vision, align people behind that vision and work together to make that vision happen.
I’m not a politician. I'm running to inspire Tucson to realize its full potential and to be the city's first woman mayor. Now is the time to think differently about what is possible for Tucson.
