My Top 3 Priorities

  • Keep promise to spend $143 million bond wisely
  • Increase job training for non-college track students
  • Continue implementation of innovative educational programs for students



Profession:Paralegal/Policy Analyst
Governing Board Member, West Covina Unified School District — Elected position (2005–current)


Our school district continues to lead the way in education and program offerings, while challenging students with higher academic standards, allowing them to compete more succesfully in today's ever change world.

We have opened new schools, while many districts were closing schools.  We increase programs for our children, while other districts elminated programs.  Students can attend Mt SAC/WCUSD Pre-College Academy and earn, free of charge, two years of college while completing high school.

Our school district has begun building new facilities, including a performing arts center, new Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) buildings, new athletic facilites, play ground equipment for our schools, and upgrading 60 year old buildings.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

I make decisions by asking myself a simple question:  "Does this improve the education of the children in our community?"  Takes politics out of the decision and centers decisions on education.
