Isabel is an experienced policy professional and community advocate running for Lakewood City Council Ward 2. As Policy Director for a statewide health advocacy nonprofit, Isabel has spent over 10 years bringing people together to advance social change. Isabel is running to co-create bold solutions with diverse community members to tackle housing, transportation, and public safety challenges in Lakewood, making it more inclusive and sustainable for all.

Lakewood faces economic and housing challenges exacerbated by climate change and the pandemic, which make it difficult for small businesses and residents to stay and thrive. Isabel aims to work with the community to develop solutions that address these issues, making Lakewood more equitable and full of opportunities for all.

As a young, queer Latina running in her first election, Isabel hopes to strengthen pipelines to leadership going forward for underrepresented constituencies in Lakewood. She is committed to building a more equitable future and bringing her community-driven leadership to the city council.
