Education: Master’s in International Education, Stanford University; Bachelor’s in Elementary Education, University of Arizona
Occupation: Small Business Founder and CEO

Eleven years ago, I transitioned from being an elementary teacher to building a successful online company that supports teachers around the world. Because of my career, I am deeply knowledgeable about what is working in today’s classrooms and am proud to have shared my expertise with our community as a school board director for the past four years.


In my second term, I will continue working with our community to develop a long-term solution that will enable every student to benefit from lower class size, even as our population continues to grow. I will also continue developing a sustainable funding plan to ensure that Tahoma is responsible with the money we have while also working with the state for more stable funding in the future.


As a teacher, Tahoma mom, and current school board director, I’m excited to continue ensuring our district provides cutting-edge education to all of our students.

As a Parent, Grandparent and Tahoma Community member for 46 years, I am eager to bring my vast experience and perspective to the School Board!


This is a pivotal year for Tahoma with bonds and levies being voted on. The Financial Stewardship of the next board will be vital. Having TSD subcommittee experience and a passion for Facility Operations, I plan to assist in harboring a Functional School District focused on the Safety and Security of our students. We are fortunate to have First Class Teachers in TSD. I look forward to working with the community to strengthen our Parent-Teacher Partnership.
