I ask for your support to serve you again on the Vashon Island School Board. When my service ended on the School Board in 2007, I felt that I left the district with many improvements in: policies, budget, hiring/firing, curriculum alignment, highly capable program, capital improvements, and especially communications and interactive processes with the community to ensure that our school system is accessible, responsive, transparent, and accountable.


My children and grandchildren attended/attend Vashon schools. I have served you with integrity, honesty, and straightforwardness on boards for our community including the Vashon School Board, Vashon Park District, Vashon Maury Island Community Council, VIJB Basketball, Vashon Youth Baseball, WSF FAC, Puget Sound Regional Council Growth Management Policy Board, King County EEO/AA Employee Advisory, COMTO, and more. I have extensive experience in bringing people together to find solutions. It’s always the right time to do the right thing.

I’m running for Position 5 to help rebalance power, restore faith, and improve accountability and transparency in the district.


For our students to thrive, we must ensure their emotional, physical, and psychological safety. Multiple, ongoing instances of student sexual predation by adults who were charged with their education and care require a deep consideration of our collective responsibility and a forensic examination of how this was allowed to go on for so long. New leaders must steward a process of repair and reflection with bold and ambitious vision.


I commit to center the students furthest from educational justice, including students of color, English language learners, members of the LGBTQIA+ community, and neurodivergent learners. Doing so will improve the outcomes and day-to-day experiences of all VISD students. As a longtime community organizer, my volunteer and board experience includes the Vashon Food Bank, VIGA’s Food Access Partnership, and the Vashon Green School.
