My Top 3 Priorities

  • Improve educational opportunities for all students. Listen to fellow parents.
  • Fiscal responsibility. Support teachers of SLCUSD.
  • To promote better services to a ranging diversity of students. I have worked with at-risk populations with and without achievement gaps and am mindful of students who excel academically and need to be challenged.

Biography

I am a credentialed school teacher, counselor and administrator for the state of California. I have served schools in all of these roles. I am a mother of two incredible children that currently attend SLCUSD. I am a wife and business partner to my husband of 17 years. I am involved in my children's academic, athletic, volunteer and social activities.  My training allows me to see educational programs through a lens of an educator with the expectations of a parent. I want the best programs and most academically challenging offerings for my children and their peers. I am a Cal Poly, "Learn By Doing" graduate. I believe that my perspective as a current parent, my relative youth, second language abilities (fluent in Spanish) and diversity would bring another perspective to the school board table that would benefit a diverse student population. While I am different from the other candidates and board members in these ways, I am also a strong advocate for rigor in academics. I want to better support the district for a top-notch, first-rate education for the children of San Luis Coastal Unified School District. 

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

“Upon the subject of education, not presuming to dictate any plan or system respecting it, I can only say that I view it as the most important subject which we as a people can be engaged in.”

Abraham Lincoln
