Education, Experience, and Community Volunteering

Prepared Me for Service on the Board of Education for the San Diego Unified School District 


Education Matters! 


There's work to be done and I'm ready to roll up my sleeves. 


Vote for me and I will work for and stand by you to: 

  • Prepare students to succeed as global citizens of a world where everything is constantly changing 

  • Make sure student basic needs are met so they're ready to learn. 

  • Increase transparency in our schools to make sure staff, teachers, and contractors are all treated fairly. 

  • Move public comments from the end of the meeting to the beginning. 

  • Ensure Local Control Funding benefits students in ways that close the achievement gap. 

  • Advocate for methods other than suspensions to resolve conflict and close the discipline gap. 

I practice what I preach in terms of education, having earned a joint doctorate in educational leadership from UC San Diego and CSU San Marcos while working full time at UC San Diego. 

As Organizational Development Manager for Transportation Services at UC San Diego I lead organizational development and the department’s continuous improvement initiatives. I am already finding and implementing solutions in educational environments.
