Graduated from Hoover High School & from USC with degrees in Economics & Communication. Worked as Assistant Vice President at the Pacific Stock Exchange Clearing House & Depository, where I implemented a computerized trade clearing system. Currently I am an owner and manager of a small business that tests, repairs & installs Backflow Valves throughout Los Angeles and Orange County. As an integral part of Kalish Construction for over 30 years, I was involved in the construction of many of Glendale’s residences, commercial buildings and landmark public buildings: like, the Brand Park Library, Maple Park, and Woodrow Wilson Middle School.
My ties to the Glendale Community run deep, from attending Holy Family and Incarnation parochial schools, volunteering for many years at Glendale Adventist Hospital, to performing in various productions at The Glendale Center Theater, including their annual Christmas Carol play. I was involved in the Glendale-Burbank chapter of the Building Industry Association (BIA) and I have spent many hours in fund-raising events for the Glendale Oakdale Manor Garden Club, and assisting the President of The Glendale chapter of the National Charity League.
An organization is only as strong as its membership, and I plan to reach out to all of the residents of Glendale by finding a connection that will galvanize them into belonging to our organization.l, with her husband Arnie, own an independent backflow device testing company headquartered in Glendale. Longtime residents, they both enjoy helping make Glendale a great place to live and do business.
