I am a multi-generational resident of the Monterey Peninsula and as a young parent I was active in the school district while simultaneously managing a career with the Air Force and putting myself through college. Earning an AA in Social Sciences and a BA in Politics I moved on to become a Tax Professional and have been a community organizer throughout the greater Monterey Bay Area. My focus is ensuring equity and parity across schools within the district, closing the digital divide, and facilitating distance learning during the Covid19 pandemic, while engaging and listening to the parents and stakeholders in our community.
