I have served nine years on the Dixie School Board.   My focus has always been on creating an environment where every child has the opportunity to succeed.

 

Our students are some of the highest performers in the State. This requires small classes, rich curriculum, and the best teachers, staff and administration.  I strongly support social emotional learning programs to ensure a safe learning environment for all students.

 

I have worked on successful campaigns for two parcel tax initiatives and a bond measure securing important local funding for our schools. Fiscal responsibility is paramount to ensure each dollar is wisely spent benefiting students first.

 

I am a dedicated and compassionate leader focused on the quality- of- education, equity, and fiscal challenges, while representing diverse interests.

 

I would be honored by your vote and the opportunity to continue to serve our community.
