This last year has been challenging for everybody.18 months ago, nobody could have visualized a world where kids were not in classrooms. While our educators have done a great job of adapting to unprecedented times, we have also seen the gaps in our system widen. And while we all hope for a return to “normalcy” we need to learn from this disruption to education and work together in an innovative fashion to move forward in an inclusive, equitable and a welcoming learning environment.  


As parent to twins and a member of the PTA, my experience with the LWSD prompted me to join the race to ensure that our schools are ready to meet the challenges and help our children thrive.


I’m committed to draw on my background to bring fresh energy, responsible fiscal management, and innovations to the LWSD focusing on these four areas: equity and inclusion, mental wellness, school infrastructure, and teacher support.


I will be a voice for students, families and community members and will seek out the unheard students and parents. I know with the right leadership, the LWSD can build on our strengths to expand opportunities and deliver high-quality education for every student.

2021-2022 is a rebuilding year. While we incorporate some of the creative solutions used last year to help students, we must increase our social emotional learning and equity programs, too. 

Beyond our top-notch academics and graduation rates, we must pay even more attention to students’ social and mental health struggles as they navigate a seemingly ever-changing world.

Our diverse student body requires a diverse staff to support their social and academic needs.  We must enhance our trauma-informed practices and inclusive education efforts while supporting staff to incorporate UDL as best practices. 

I want all students to feel they have a home within their school.
