My Top 3 Priorities

  • My priority is to insure that the Castro Valley Unified School District continues to provide an excellent education for its students.
  • A second priority is to insure that district resources are being used efficiently.
  • A third priority is to insure that all the students and teachers in the district have the tools they need to succeed.



I have been active as a parent volunteer in the Castro Valley schools for the past ten plus years.  As the parent of Castro Valley elementary and middle school students, I served as PTA President, Vice President, Secretary, and Parliamentarian of the Jensen Ranch Elementary School PTA.  I served on the school site councils for both Jensen Ranch and Creekside Middle School, on the Superintendent’s Parent Leadership Group, and on the Superintendent’s Committee regarding overcrowding in the elementary schools in the eastern part of Castro Valley. 

I currently work as the Broker Liaison for an intellectual property law firm.  Prior to joining that firm, I worked as a contract attorney with several Fortune 1000 corporations as clients. She also counseled individual inventors in licensing and government contracting matters. Prior to that, I was Associate General Counsel for a research and development company, where I worked on licensing, real estate, and government contracting matters. Earlier in my legal career, I was a law clerk for the New Hampshire Superior Court, a Staff Attorney for a court management consulting organization, and an associate attorney with a firm specializing in municipal law.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

As government at all levels has finite resources, I believe it is important to keep your highest priorities in mind at all time. The education of our future generations is as important as anything we do. I also think it is important to address our needs today while remembering to plan for tomorrow.
