Previous elected office/community involvement: Current: Vice President of the Brampton Hills Community Association; Weekly volunteer at Waterloo ES and Veterans ES; active Waterloo ES PTA member; volunteer at Moveable Feast in Baltimore; member of the American Association of University Women (AAUW), League of Women Voters Howard County and the National Conference of Black Political Scientists.

Goal as a Board of Education member: I'm a lifelong resident of Howard County: I grew up here, went to school here, and am raising a family here. I want to give back to the community that has given me so much and to ensure that my son, his peers, and every child, at every school have equitable opportunities as HCPSS students. On the board, I will fight to make sure our schools work with our community to promote equity throughout the county, support our dedicated educators, be responsive to challenges in implementing the Common Core, and focus on the mental health and well-being of our students.
