Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • Recognizing and serving the increasingly diverse needs of each of our seven school sites in the Solana Beach School District

I am currently serving my second year as the Solana Beach Schools Foundation Site Co-President at Solana Highlands Elementary.  In this role, I am tasked with meeting our Foundation fundraising goals so that our students can continue to benefit from our award-winning STREAM curriculum and programs.  I am so proud that our school has exceeded our fundraising goals during my time as Site President.  I also served as PTA President at Solana Highlands for two years and have led many different programs and events at Solana Highlands and Solana Pacific over the past eight years, all working to build strong relationships between our families, teachers and community and provide the best possible foundation for our our students in their early-school years.  It is my pleasure and honor to serve in these roles and be present in our schools on a daily basis.   If elected, I look forward to bringing this invaluable and necessary connection from our schools and community to the school board.

In addition to my volunteer work, I have worked at Fortune 500 companies including Hewlett-Packard Company and Xerox Corp. for over twenty years as a product manager with budget accountability.   My husband and I have lived in the Solana Beach School District since 1999.   We have four children (three of which are students in our Solana Beach schools and our oldest is an 8th grader at Carmel Valley Middle School).  With my years of volunteer leadership in our schools and the relationships that I have been so fortunate to have made with the families and staff across our district, I am ideally positioned to provide a genuine and lasting connection to our school programs, curriculum, and most importantly, the students that our Board is serving. 

What is biggest issue...?
The biggest issue facing the Solana Beach School Board is the tightening budget.  Our district is facing rapidly increasing expenditures required to be paid to the state retirement systems in the coming year(s) as well as new areas of spending to ensure we are addressing the emotional needs of our students. We must recognize and adapt to the growing diversity across the seven school sites in our district and above all, we must continue to safeguard the academic success of our students which has made our district truly a sought-after community.  There will be hard decisions to make.  The budget and policy decisions that will come before our board in the short term must be driven with an accurate sense of what is going on within our schools as well as a policy of open communication and transparency.  I have been and will continue to be present in our schools, spending time with our students and talking with our families, teachers and community members to ensure that all viewpoints are fairly represented including our most valuable stakeholders - our Solana Beach students.

Our children have thrived in our Solana Beach schools, and I want to make sure the legacy of our great schools perseveres for generations to come.  My campaign has the support of the Solana Beach Teachers Association.   For more information, visit
