Occupation: Director of Integrated Programs, Community Health Plan of Washington

The importance of equity is clear in our district, but recent budget constraints provide ongoing challenges to address disparities. I am committed to supporting community voices in the decision making process, to ensure we have fiscal stability and support the broad range of needs among students. As a parent of a child in the district, I have seen schools face incredible challenges over the last few years. As we move forward, it will be important to develop a strategic plan to help guide prioritization and accountability. 

I have previous experience as a teacher, in performance evaluation and for the last ten years have worked in health care administration; including in advocacy, strategy and management. I have also volunteered in schools and have been involved in the PTA. I will provide leadership that supports community building, transparency and prioritizes equity for students, families, and schools.

This board has driven Shoreline Schools into the ground. This board's lack of transparency and communication with the students and staff they serve is disappointing. This board's unwillingness to find equitable solutions to the District’s budget crisis is disturbing. 


I am a Shoreline native and graduate of Shoreline Schools. I am currently an employee of the district and everyday I see students whose current lives and futures would be decimated by the board's Reduced Educational Plan.


As a board member I will not spend endless time pontificating on achieving equitable outcomes, I will achieve them. When rubber hits the road, I will not vote for budgets that clearly target our most vulnerable students, I will pursue the values of the Shoreline School District at all costs. When I am on the board, I will bring in all stakeholders and we will save Shoreline Schools together.

I believe in the power of a diverse and inclusive school environment that benefits students and enriches our community. As an involved father, PTSA treasurer and person of color, I will bring a fresh perspective to the School Board and amplify underrepresented voices. As your next Director, I'll tirelessly advocate for students, prioritizing educational equity, parent/community engagement and opportunities to thrive.

My professional experience placed me in leadership positions, reflecting an ability to problem-solve and unite people. I'll work towards policies and programs that enhance academic achievement and prioritize students' social-emotional well-being.

My wife and I have lived in Shoreline for nine years. This fall, our daughter will enter second grade. I approach this role determined to enhance fiscal transparency and decision-making. With your support and your vote, we can create a school system that is more responsive to parent feedback and better serves our community's needs. Thank you.
