About Naomi

About Naomi

A native of Nebraska, I possess the innate ideals of a true Midwesterner, paired with a unique perspective from four years overseas, and time lived across the United States as well. My personal history affords me a nuanced understanding of established systems in all those areas. I insist on empathy and equity for those who present differently than I do. A mother of three children (25, 17 and 14), with a house full of rescue pups and cats, we love living in District 6, in our home near the Elkhorn River.

  • I believe in community impact.
  • I believe in listening—between the lines.
  • I believe quiet power is a form of activism.
  • I believe in the magic of kindness.
  • I believe in the beauty of building something that matters.
  • I believe we each have leadership inside of us.
  • I believe we can each contribute – when we find meaningful ways and lanes of impact.

Our city governments need to be rooted in equity. They must work to address our implicit biases as they relate to decisions we make, policies we enact and the way that we listen to our citizens. Leadership needs to be accessible, welcoming and engaged, and I bring that to the table. I am the right candidate to help provide economic advantages for more people, lead in innovative development and housing and collaborate together for Omaha.
