Experience

Biography

I have a son that will enter kindergarten next fall, ensuring a quality education experience for him is a high priority for me.  I have a baccalaureate degree from Sonoma State in Liberal Arts and received my general ed at the Napa JC.  

I am a California girl, born in San Luis Obispo, moved to the small town of Quincy in the Sierra Nevadas, and arrived in the Napa Valley in 2001.   

I worked in the hospitality industry for several years, back and front of the house, and transitioned to the position of Environmental Relations Manager for Auberge du Soleil where I worked for almost 9 years.  I implemented and managed all the sustainability initiatives for the resort including Water and Energy Conservation, Waste Reduction, Employee Wellness, and Community Engagement.  I feel that my experience building these programs from the ground up would benefit our school district.  Through my efforts, Auberge du Soleil was the first hotel in Napa County to receive certification by the Bay Area Green Business program.  I am a certified LEED Green Associate.

Currently, my business partner Stacy Bratlien and I formed a non-profit, YogaNV, Inc., (aka Yoga in the Park.)  I am a certified Yoga Teacher through the Yoga Alliance.  

I manage the social media for the Napa Valley Vine Trail and am in the process of creating the first mural art district  in the city of Napa along the Vine Trail path.   

I volunteer regularly and have served on the Adopt-a-School steering committee for 5 years.  I've am extremely passionate about creating a sustainable local food system and have been very involved with our Local Food Advisory Council since their formation. 

 

My mother recently retired as a 4th grade teacher from Canyon Oaks Elementary, so I also have first source information of what it is like to be a teacher in the Napa Valley Unified School District.
