And here's a bit about what led me down the path to run for elected office:
As a parent & community activist, I experienced firsthand how working together produces REAL results to improve our schools and communities.
  • I led and managed a reading program for struggling students in 10 MDUSD schools that showed significant, measurable results for 300 students per year.
  • Serving as PFC President, I launched innovative technology that streamlined communication and increased parent involvement.  
  • Working with a coalition of students, parents, and employees, we sent drafts and spoke up at two school district board meetings, resulting in the MDUSD School Board passing a Safe Haven Resolution.
  • I initiated Safe Routes to School by writing a change.org petition to gain community awareness and to advocate for pedestrian safety. Construction is now complete on two new flashing pedestrian beacons, 3 new crosswalks, a new bike lane, digital speed signs, and sidewalk bulbouts that show down cars and create safer and shorter crossings for pedestrians.
