As a product of the California public school system, I am honored to serve on our school board. In my role as trustee, I am focused on the welfare and academic needs of our students, leadership that ensures transparency and community involvement in board decisions, and support for our teachers and staff. I am a strong advocate for ensuring the interests of ALL students are represented.  I also believe it is imperative to advocate at the state and national level on matters impacting our school community.

I put myself through college, receiving my B.A. from UC Berkeley and my J.D. from Santa Clara University.  As an attorney, my job is to find solutions and forge consensus between opposing viewpoints on complex problems.  I also have extensive experience with legislation and advocacy. I combine my experience as an involved parent of two children in district schools with my professional skills to achieve positive change on the board, and to advocate and help deliver on the promising futures we all want for our children.

I received my Bachelors of Science from University of Denver and my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from Colorado State University. After eighteen years in equine practice here in Ventura County, I am now teaching Horse Science at Pierce College and Zoology at Moorpark College.

My husband Patrick and I have two children who graduated from CVUSD schools. While they were students, I assumed leadership roles in the PTA, District Advisory Council and the Band Boosters. My experiences as a parent, school volunteer and college instructor inform my efforts to meet the challenges faced by the district.

As a member of the School Board, I try hard to stay informed, communicate with parents, and work productively with my fellow Board Members. I believe in setting goals and measuring our success in reaching those goals. The CVUSD is a great district, working hard to become greater and I am proud to be a part of that effort.

As the daughter of two public school teachers, I was raised to love the public school system. I am the full-time mother of five children, three of whom have graduated from CVUSD schools and two are currently attending. One of my guiding principles is that parents know what is best for their own children.  Therefore, I strongly advocate for parental involvement and rights in our children’s education.

I have spent many years volunteering in my children’s schools, most often as room-parent, teacher helper or booster club member, but I have also served as PTA president.  I believe in listening to all stakeholders and involving them in accomplishing CVUSD’s educational goals.

I earned my Bachelor of Arts in English with a French minor from Brigham Young University and my Master of Science in Education from Purdue University. I currently hold an active school counseling license and my training as a school counselor greatly informs my views as a member of the board.
