I am running for school board to support our current educators and students, put my education and business experience to work for our schools, and make a difference in our community. I am honored to have been appointed to the School Board and ask Bend-La Pine voters to elect me on May 16th


For the future of our students

I know education. I’ve dedicated my entire career to supporting kids and teachers to improve public education. After graduating with my bachelors in education, I've worked as a teacher, school administrator, school system HR head, education philanthropist, and national education nonprofit leader. I will listen and learn what's important to you, and put my experience to work for our community.

I am the only candidate with education experience - a critical and missing perspective on the school board.

Closing the achievement gap
School bond management

For the future of our schools

I know business. My masters of business administration (MBA), experience managing multi-million dollar budgets, and running my own small business and foundation in Bend provides me with the skills and expertise needed to help manage a large School Bond and complex budget on behalf of taxpayers.



For the future of our community

I know our community. I was born and raised in Bend and am deeply committed to this community. Bend-La Pine is a special place with dedicated teachers, a strong superintendent and board, and a supportive community. But as our community grows and national and state policy and politics change, we’re entering a period with many major decisions on the horizon. How do we manage growth? How do we improve graduation rates? How do we close the achievement gap between students from different economic backgrounds? How do we help teachers and schools innovate to better meet the needs of today’s students and tomorrow’s economy?

I am uniquely qualified to help lead Bend-La Pine through these decisions.

If chosen to serve, I will work tirelessly to listen to you, and be an informed voice of reason as we engage with the many big issues facing the board in the coming years. I will bring integrity, optimism, experience and vision to this role.
