With 15 years of direct experience working in schools as a teacher, counselor, and administrator, an MA in Education with a focus on school policy reform, and two children of my own, I bring a perspective as both an educator and a parent.
My 12 years as a school counselor inform my practice of working to understand nuanced student, parent, and teacher perspectives from multiple sides, and have equipped me with the ability to facilitate communication between parents and teachers. I enjoy working to understand the concerns of the community and collaborating towards meaningful, impactful change.
I have broad experience getting to know a community, listening to their needs, and thinking about programming to meet those needs. I have worked to empower members of the community to collaborate towards success.
I have worked directly with and for parents, teachers, and students, helping them develop the tools they need to advocate for themselves, and serving as a voice when it has been useful.
