As a lawyer, finance professional, and, most importantly, mother of 3 elementary school children, I understand the importance of a strong and responsive district on many levels. My family has lived in the district for over 5 years, and are passionate about our schools and community. I see the profound effect of early childhood education, strong schools that focus on the whole student, and the community impact of having a district to partner with and be proud of. Well researched, decisive actions are required to retain our outstanding teachers and staff that support our schools, adequately plan for a growing school population, and making budget decisions that benefit this district in the best ways possible. If elected as a Board member, I would bring my legal understandings, financial background, and attention to detail to make decisions that so intricately effect our schools, families and community.
