Educator - Advocate - Activist
I am running for a seat on the Los Rios Community College District Board of Trustees on Nov. 3 to represent Service Area 4. I am running because of my long-term commitment to public education. And I am running because this position is critical now as we struggle to recover from widespread economic and educational disruption in the months and years to come.
I have been an active community leader in our region for 29 years. That includes many years as a PTA president, Site Council Chair, Destination Imagination organizer, church youth group leader and Girl Scout leader. More recently, in March 2017, I co-founded and still lead Sister District CA-3.
I also know firsthand that our community colleges change lives. I spent a decade working with community college faculty, traveling across California to learn about programs that led students to success. As a high school teacher, I’ve steered hundreds of high school students to Los Rios campuses. My husband is a community college graduate and four of my children have taken classes at Sacramento City College. This race is personal to me.
As a trustee, I will apply my experience, passion and commitment to advocate for our students and communities. As I have for the past 29 years, I will show up and stand up for our shared values!
In service to you,
