Biografía

Dear Community Member: I am running for the Salinas Union High School District School Board.  I am a Salinas native who attended and graduated from our local schools including the Salinas Union High School District.  I have lived in this district for most of my life and care deeply about the future of our great city.  I understand a key part of the solution to preventing violence, creating good paying jobs, and ending poverty is to have a thriving education system and more opportunities for our youth. I have served our community in several capacities such as a Youth Commissioner for the City of Salinas, a Mental Health Commissioner for the County of Monterey, and as a member of the Board of Directors for both the Community Alliance for Safety and Peace (CASP) and the Salinas Union High School District’s Education Foundation.

I have decided to dedicate my life in service to others as an advocate for the educational needs and success of our students and families. 
That is why I work as a Community Resource Manager for a local foster care agency which provides supportive housing and intense case management for foster children who have been separated from their families. It is through this experience that I have been able to see how our local education system is failing far too many of our students. Our local school district needs to focus more on violence prevention, career training programs, college readiness programs for first generation college students, mental health services, and increasing parental involvement in all district schools. My background and proven track record in government and advocacy makes me uniquely qualified to be an effective leader in this position.

​I would be honored to receive your vote as we work together towards creating the best schools in Salinas.
