    Reason for serving on the board:

    I am passionate about public education and serving our teachers and students in the classroom.  I feel led to work with our schools to establish a positive working partnership with our county, local municipalities and families to ensure that everyone has a seat at the table and that the needs of our schools are being met.  I am honored to represent District 4, and I look forward to serving UCPS as we plan for continued academic success for all children in and out of the classroom.
