Biographical Info:



I have 3 reasons for running for a seat on the Humboldt Unified School District Governing Board: each of them share a last name with me – they are my children. My husband and I have always been deeply involved with our children’s academic growth, but our involvement began and ended with discussions and worksheets at the kitchen table. We turned a corner when the pandemic turned our schools upside down. Navigating the uncertainties was a challenge, especially as working parents, and it became obvious that it was our duty as parents to start attending board meetings and taking a more active role. I’ve had the privilege of conversing with several HUSD families since I began this journey and I have discovered there is genuine concern about the direction our public education system is headed, exposure to harmful ideologies being at the top of the list. I hope to be a voice for those families as well as shield my own children from negative influences as a Board member for HUSD. As the saying goes: “nothing changes if nothing changes.” I aim to be the change. Thank you for your time and consideration – I hope to earn your vote on November 8.
