Biografía

 

I was raised as an Air Force brat, attending 9 schools before graduating from HS in England.  After graduation, I worked my way through college (6 years) and can proudly say, “I’m a First Generation Graduate.”  I was one of two women in my class to graduate with bachelor’s degree in computer science.

I have been a Los Altos resident for over 24 years, having moved here for the exceptional schools and welcoming community.  I began volunteering at Cupertino Co-Op nursery school in 1994 and continued as my three children went to Springer, Covington, Blach, Egan and MVHS. I still volunteer today.

I was a Mountain View High parent of three for 8 straight years.    My kids have very different learning styles, passions and interests that, along with their transition to and graduation from college, have given me greater insight into what MVLA grads need to prepare for success beyond high school.   I’m proud to say that my youngest obtained his master’s degree in education (June 2018) and is now teaching 8th grade English.  His experiences have also allowed me to better understand some of the challenges our teachers face.

My job uses state-of-the-art technology, which I’ve continued to try to leverage into our district.  Although technology has enhanced student learning, it also brings challenges that we need to face. Social media is one such challenge.

I have been steadfastly dedicated to doing whatever I can to help ensure the success of our students, and I believe my experiences on the Board will enable me to continue and even expand upon this work.
