Councilwoman Whitehead and her family came to Scottsdale in 1996 from San Diego for 'just six months', fell in love with everything Arizona and never went back. She is an electrical engineer, accomplished businesswoman, conservationist, and volunteer.

Councilwoman Whitehead serves to ensure that community priorities drive City policies. She spends her time meeting with constituents, performing government due diligence, and visiting Scottsdale’s many neighborhoods and business districts. She brings stakeholders with contrasting viewpoints together to find a unified path forward.

Councilwoman Whitehead is relentlessly focused on making Scottsdale an efficient and effective government to protect tax dollars and positively impact every resident. She enacts policies that deliver triple bottom-line benefits by protecting public health, improving quality of life, and lowering costs.

Councilwoman Whitehead serves on the Board of Waste Not and volunteers at the Granite Reef Senior Center. She is a former Preserve Commissioner, was named “Conservationist of the Year” by the Arizona Wildlife Federation, helped pass the Protect Our Preserve initiative, and provided funding for the 3-D Printer lab at Scottsdale Community College. She and her husband have three grown children and spend a lot of time outdoors.
