Biography

Having lived in Silicon Valley for over 30 years, I choose this district to raise my children as it's one of the best in the country. My youngest is still at Saratoga High School and I am very actively involved, currently serving as President of the Saratoga High School Foundation and Parent Chaperone Lead for the Saratoga Marching Band.

 

My work background in high tech has spanned over 30 years, first as an engineer and then in Marketing. I have a BS in Chemical Engineering from UC Berkeley and an MBA from the London Business School. My strengths have been in solving technical problems, working with people to understand their needs, and creating, defining, and launching new ideas. This has led to great success both for the companies I worked at and for the people around me.
