I am committed to serving District 65 because I know what a difference education can make. My mother instilled in me from an early age how important getting an education would be to my future. She wasn't able to complete high school, struggled to provide for us, and knew she wanted more for me. After my Mom, my teachers and principals showed me best what could be possible for me. I want to do my part in ensuring every child in Evanston sees that same possibility for their lives.
In addition to the last four years in the role, my professional experience as a strategy and operational improvement consultant to nonprofits and businesses for the last twenty plus years has prepared me for school board service.
