Occupation: Substitute teacher

Previous elected office/community involvement: PTSA president or vice president for over 10 years; appointed to the board of animal control for Howard county: 2 year term; Elkridge Youth Organization director of ways and means, basketball and baseball coach; Greater Elkridge Community Association, area director; volunteer at Sarah's Hope in Baltimore, member of the League of Women Voters of Howard County and Howard County Citizens Association.
Goal as Board of Education member: I am interested in the holistic success for every student in Howard County. I will be the candidate parents can relate to, I will communicate to them. I'm not afraid to let parents and teachers know what's happening in our schools and to make them aware of any issues and upcoming policies before it's too late to do something about it. I have a very flexible schedule and now that my kids are older I can devote the time as if this will be my full time job!
