I strongly believe that it is important for the LCUSD Governing Board to enhance the already excellent reputation of our schools while maintaining programs that provide for a well-rounded education and a positive and safe learning environment.

With three children currently attending PCY and two children who have successfully navigated the college admissions process, I understand the needs and interests of students, parents, teachers, and administrators at all grade levels.

I believe that an effective governing board should carefully evaluate all perspectives and strive to build consensus through a transparent process in order to achieve the outcomes that best serve its mandate. As a supervising prosecutor for over 20 years, I have a long history of working diligently to understand differing viewpoints and building consensus to achieve results.

Safety is an important issue today. As a prosecutor, Regional Safety Director and Divisional Coach for AYSO, and a former ambulance EMT, I have experience evaluating and implementing safety policies and practices.

My father is a retired college professor and I care deeply about our schools. I promise to bring my diverse work experience, skills, life experiences and passion for education to the LCUSD Governing Board to ensure that our schools continue to excel.
