As a proud Renton School District graduate and parent, I was honored to be appointed as your District 2 Renton School Board Director. I am committed to serving our public schools for our children, educators, citizens, and community. I was born and raised in Renton, attended Highlands and Kennydale Elementary, McKnight Middle, and graduated from Hazen High School.  The Renton School District provided me with strong preparation to go on to graduate from Duke University, then complete a master’s degree and a doctorate of medicine.  I also completed a Psychiatry residency and a Child and Adolescent Psychiatry fellowship at the UW, then went on to serve on faculty at the UW. I now work as a child psychiatrist at Eating Recovery Center and Seattle Children’s Hospital. In the Renton School District community, I serve on the boards of Friends of Renton Schools and Renton Area Youth and Family Services.  I am also active in my professional organizations, where I advocate for children locally and nationally. I will be a dedicated champion for every student in the Renton School District and work hard to help them achieve success in our public schools.  I would sincerely appreciate your support!
