My Top 3 Priorities

  • Ensuring the success of all students is my top priority. We need to support our educators and staff to safely reopen schools so that we may prioritize academic excellence, grounded in equity and inclusion.
  • As we proceed through our phases of reopening, we need to do everything we can to ensure that students receive the academic quality and rigor that was in-place prior to Covid and to help re-build the social-emotional relationships in the classroom.
  • Finally, we need prompt, thorough, and frequent communication to our parents and greater community so that we can all do our part to facilitate this process. This is one of my top priorities as a board incumbent.



Profession:RUSD Board Incumbent / Parent / Businesswoman
Incumbent - School Board Trustee, Reed Union School District — Appointed position (2020–current)


University of Pennsylvania Bachelor of Arts (B.A.), International Relations, Political Science, Communications (1997)


I am a native Californian. I grew up in Southern CA and moved to Tiburon with my husband and three children in 2013. Our children all currently attend the Reed Union School District at Reed (2nd grade), Bel Aire (4th grade) and Del Mar (6th grade). Both my husband and I attended public elementary school, and we feel so fortunate that our children are able to receive an exceptional public education at the Reed Schools.

Work Experience

I have spent my career as a researcher and a small business owner, and my job has always been to listen to key stakeholder objectives and to apply sound research and critical thinking to deliver actionable insights. In 2005, I co-founded eVOC Insights, LLC a digital marketing research and consulting firm headquartered in San Francisco, CA. As CEO, I am responsible for all aspects of the business including managing client and partner relationships, directing sound research engagements, collaborating with consultant teams, and overseeing the daily operations of the firm.

My work experience has been invaluable for me as a Trustee during this unprecedented time, with ever changing guidelines and a myriad of stakeholder concerns.  I'm committed to data-driven decision making, collaboration, fiscal responsibility, and thoughtful communication to the parent and greater community. 

Volunteer Experience

Prior to joining the school board, I volunteered on both the Parent Teachers Association (PTA) and the Foundation for Reed Schools for 7 years. While serving on the PTA I volunteered as a room parent, yearbook coordinator, Bel Aire play photographer, Regatta volunteer and Reed Treasurer. For the Foundation, I helped with fundraising as Co-chair of the Directory (3 years) and Co-chair of Scholar’s Circle (1 year).

I also served on the RUSD Strategic Planning Collaborative in January 2020, and I worked for the 2019 Measure E: Parcel Tax Renewal campaign. Being a volunteer has been a wonderful experience and has helped me get to know our students, teachers, families and local community partners. I am so grateful for the experiences that I have had as a volunteer in this district. 

I also am currently the Treasurer of Children of Shelters (COS), a non-profit organization based in San Francisco that is dedicated to providing educational and enrichment opportunities to children living in the shelter system.   I have served on this board for 8 years.  I believe that all children deserve the opportunity to learn and to thrive under any living condition.


I received my Bachelor of Arts from the University of Pennsylvania in International Relations, Communications and Political Science. As a senior at Penn I was a member of the Friar’s Senior Honors Society and I was Captain of the Penn Women’s Ski team.

For high school, I attended Villanova Preparatory School in Ojai, CA, where I played soccer, volleyball, softball and ran track. The summer after my Junior year, I was a Congressional Page in Washington, DC and as a graduating Senior, I received the Villanova Award for Excellence in Athletics. For primary school, I attended public elementary at Montecito Union School (K-6) and Cabrillo Middle School (7-8).

I have always been passionate about education and I have continued to take courses at Stanford University in Politics and Philosophy, through Stanford’s Continuing Education Studies. I am currently enrolled in Stanford’s Political Science courses: Election 2020: A Panoramic View of America’s Decisive Election (POL 57) and Technology and the 2020 Election: How Silicon Valley Technologies Impact our Elections and Shape our Democracy (POL 58).

As an incoming Board Member, I will have completed all of the California School Board Association (CSBA) Masters in Governance (MIG) Training Courses this year:

  • MIG COURSE 1: Foundations of Effective Governance | Setting Direction (Completed - Sept 2020)

  • MIG COURSE 2: Student Learning & Achievement | Policy & Judicial Review (Oct 2020)

  • MIG COURSE 3: School Finance (Completed - Feb 2020)

  • MIG COURSE 4: Human Resources | Collective Bargaining (Completed - Feb 2020)

  • MIG COURSE 5: Community Relations | Governance Integration (Completed - Sept 2020)


I enjoy spending time with my family and our dog Beau, hiking, skiing, surfing (mostly watching surfing), reading, painting, playing tennis, and making pancakes and bacon with my family on the weekends.
