Shanti serves on the Lighthouse Counseling & Family Resource Center Board of Directors and is currently on the Executive Committee as Treasurer. Her decision to serve on the Lighthouse Board was largely influenced by her experience as a mom of four children adopted out of foster care. She is passionate about early interventions for at-risk families, to help ensure that those who choose to access resources can avoid getting to the point where children have to enter foster care in the first place.
Shanti also serves on Assemblyman Kevin Kiley’s Civic Advisory Committee. In this role, she helps provide Assemblyman Kiley with relevant information pertaining to the impacts of state policy at the local level.
Shanti is also a proud Rotarian, and aims to abide by the Rotary motto of Service Above Self. She filters many decisions through the “four way test” in Rotary: Is it the truth? Is it fair to all concerned? Will it build good will and better friendships? Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
Shanti’s faith and family are her core priorities, and her desire to serve as Supervisor is largely due to her commitment to ensuring Placer County remains an incredible place for them to live, work and play.
