With the right leadership, our high school district could do so much more to support our kids.

Teachers are doing wonderful job, but district leadership too often dismisses the voices of parents and their students.

I will be a leader who listens.

If we achieve our potential, El Dorado County will have a district of national prominence that reaches beyond standards and fully prepares student for success in the local and global economy.

As a graduate of Ponderosa High School, I went on to receive a master’s degree in Psychology.

As a Behavioral Therapist for 22 years, I understand the unique needs of students with learning differences.

We must support gifted students with programs that enhance their potential.

We must also ensure all types of learners are supported and given the opportunity to excel.

Most importantly, we must create a safe and positive learning environment in every school in our district – large and small.

All of this can and must be done while maintaining strong fiscal controls over district budgets and spending.

This includes protecting local taxpayers on the collection and appropriation of Mello Roos funds.

We can do better. So I ask for your vote.

Together, we can give our kids the high school district they deserve.

As a local parent, I have watched district administrators make poor decisions for our students.

District leadership has also refused to be fully transparency with our community.

I am running to change this.

I have lived in El Dorado County for 14 years and worked with the youth in our community as a coach and leader in our local church.

As a successful business executive, I have experience in managing personnel, overseeing budgets, and making tough decisions when needed.

I also proudly served in the United State Marine Corps for four years with an Honorable Discharge.

These experiences have helped me to understand the increasing competitive challenges our children face when looking to attend college and work in the global marketplace.

As a board member, I will provide a high-quality education to every student, by effectively managing the administrators, teachers and facilities.

As a fiscal conservative, I’ll make sure your tax dollars are wisely spent, including Mello Roos fees which must be spent fairly or no longer collected.

With my own children attending district schools, I will be a tireless advocate for all the youth in our community.

I humbly ask for your vote.
