Why I'm Running
ACHIEVEMENT, WELL BEING, TRUST
I know we can do better for the schools, students, teachers, and families in our district.
As a business leader and active community member for almost two decades, I want to build a county with a thriving public education system. As a parent of a middle schooler, I have a personal stake in the education and support we offer our children. I am running because I want to propel academic achievement for all students. I am running because I want to remove barriers for our teachers. I am running because we need to rebuild trust in our schools.
Our future is our children, and they need real-world skills to be successful in school and in life. Along with core competencies, we need to foster effective communicators, innovative thinkers and problem-solvers, and caring individuals.
I am committed to being an advocate and partner with our students, parents, educators, and community leaders across all South Santa Clara County. Schools should be centers of our community.

“It’s important to me that we are inclusive, fair, present in the moment and listening to ALL students.”
Propelling Student Achievement
Across the county, for ALL schools, for ALL kids. They deserve the opportunity to move forward; this includes our struggling learners and our accelerated learners too.
We need to remove barriers to achievement; let’s help our teachers teach and leaders lead and remove the obstacles in their way.
Creating Healthy Environments
Mental health awareness and support is fore front post pandemic because we all have experienced a tough couple years
It’s been on teaching staff too; let’s empower them with the resources they need to feel supported and be successful
It’s imperative schools and parents together help lay the foundation for our students to navigate the evolving and complex world before us.
This can only be done with an independent voice for families; I am a product of public school. My child is in public school.
