As a CMS parent, non-profit professional and local advocate for public education, I have exhibited a long-standing passion for education and the youth of our community.  My decision to run for school board is an extension of my continued desire to serve the community that I love.

I am a thoughtful leader who is concerned with moving this community forward and doing what is right for our students and our schools.  I am passionate about improving the state of our school district.  Through my professional career and my volunteer leadership, I have worked alongside others to create positive change for Charlotte communities.  As a result of my ongoing involvement, I have gained a tremendous understanding of the issues and challenges we face. 

I believe that service to one’s community is important and over the last decade, I have had the privilege of serving my community as the leader of two wonderful non-profit agencies.  My work has included creating prevention-based programs for at-risk children, advocating for others and working to bring our diverse community together. 

Over the last 17 years,  I have served on PTSA's, SLT's, various task force groups, led parent/community efforts, served as a facilitator and spokesperson on local issues that impact school governance, boundaries, and facility expansion.  Over the last two years, I have volunteered at three local public schools and served as a Title I Tutor at another.  As a result of this involvement, I am clear about the need to close the achievement gap that exists and ensure that all students have access to a quality education that will prepare them to be productive citizens. 

I hope that you see value in electing a leader with passion and experience.  I am asking that you support me by serving as a campaign volunteer, making a financial contribution and by casting your vote for me on November 3, 2015.
