“Nobody makes a greater mistake than he who does nothing because he could do only a little.” Edmund Burke
We have a social responsibility to build and preserve our nation today and for generations to come. I hope to be able to contribute by doing my small part, and by supporting the principles of the Democratic Party and Democrats Abroad in Portugal.  Please join us in building a better America together. 
I am a Retired Human Resources Executive with over 30 years' experience, having worked in Northern California, Tokyo (Japan), Singapore, and Hong Kong for companies like Amazon, Facebook and Coca-Cola. I grew up in Tokyo, Japan, where I attended an international school with students holding passports from over 70 different countries. I spent most of my adult life in the San Francisco Bay Area (California) and am a California voter. Upon retirement in 2021, I found my ray of sunshine in Lisbon, Portugal, where I now reside.

    The DAPT Nominations and Elections Committee is kicking off the 2023 DAPT leadership elections process. Our leadership team is an engaged, dynamic, fun group who coordinates the many volunteers who help register voters, ensure Americans in Portugal vote in the US, and organize events. 

    Interested in learning more about leading DAPT? Join us for a Sunday morning chat (bring your cup of coffee or tea!). The DAPT Nominations and Elections Committee will be hosting an online Information Session on February 12 at 11:00 am WET, so you can ask questions about becoming a candidate, nominating a member, and voting. 

    In the Democrats Abroad Portugal leadership election, our members will elect multiple positions, including: Chair, Vice-Chair, Secretary, Treasurer, Counsel, several At-Large Executive Committee Members, 1 DPCA Voting Representative, and 1 Alternate DPCA Voting Representative. The elections will take place in March and the results will be announced at our Annual General Meeting on March 22 at 7 pm.
