Statement: We have the fourth largest school district in the state. This gives Kent an opportunity and obligation to positively impact the future leaders – our children. Clear, measurable goals outlined in the strategic plan plus forward thinking from elementary through high school are first steps in positioning the District for sustainable growth in our primary goal - preparing all students for a successful future.
My grandmother was a teacher and my mother has taught and was a K-12 principal and I understand the crucial role our teachers play on our education team. I care deeply about our schools, our residents and our students. Our family has championed three daughters through the Kent School system. I have many years of community involvement and 20 years of business banking experience. These experiences have provided me with a unique skill set that can add value to the decision making required on the School Board. I value open communication between citizens and their elected officials and, if elected, will be available to the community. I will advocate for our students, parents, teachers and all of us who rely on the School Board for common sense decision making.
I ask for your support and vote!
