As an Early Childhood Educator and proud member of our community, I’m committed to making our schools exceptional.  I’m running for school board because I believe in the value of public education. I want to work with teachers, parents and the community to ensure Puyallup School District students receive the world-class education they deserve. I promise that I will make every effort to prepare our students for the workforce of the ever-changing global economy and have the tools to be ready for college.

My education, background and years of experience as an educator, and Board Member for Washington Childcare Centers Association have given me the tools to advocate on behalf of educators, students and families.  As a successful business operator, I understand the realities of working with a budget, and will ensure that PSD spends our taxpayer money wisely.

If elected, I’ll diligently work toward bridging the gap between our beloved teachers and an administration that will give them the materials, funding and support that they need and deserve to give our students the best education possible.
