Who I Am
I am running for the Escondido Union School District Board of Trustees as an advocate for those that matter most, our children. Today’s students represent the future of our community, but too often, are neglected in the decision-making process.
I have spent my career in public service; providing educational and social opportunities for families as an executive in various city Parks and Recreation departments. Perhaps most importantly, I am the parent of four children, three of which are currently enrolled in the Escondido public school system, and one recent graduate.
I am passionate about ensuring EUSD accomplishes our stated purpose: “universal student achievement.”
Why I'm Running
“Educating the whole child” is not just measured by attendance and grades but must include social and emotional well-being, physical and mental health, and valuable social interaction. These pillars of youth development will always be at the forefront of my decision-making process.
COVID-19 may change how education is delivered going forward and will require creative leadership and “out of the box” thinking to ensure that our students are engaged, prepared, and ultimately successful in their chosen pursuits.
