I have spent over 25 years as an advocate for the North Monterey County community and our students. I have served in various capacities such as President of NMC LULAC, member of the Citizens Bond Oversight Committee and on prestigious 2008 National Women of the Year from the National President of the League of United American Citizens (LULAC). As an alumni and raising four children who attend our district schools, I care deeply for the future of our local educational system and stay actively involved working with our community leaders to make North Monterey County better. I am currently employed as an HR Business Partner with FOX Factory Inc. and have successfully managed my own business for over 20 years. I love the outdoors, traveling and find great joy in spending time with my family and friends.

It is an honor to serve as a School Board Member. I have been involved in the district for the past 18 years as a student and parent of two children who attend district schools. I have served on the School Site Council, Parent Teacher Group, ELAC Committee, and President of the District English Learner Advisory Committee DELAC.

I moved to the North Monterey County area when I was 16 years old and obtained by General Educational Development (GED) with the assistance of the Migrant Program. With advice and support, I enrolled in Hartnell Community College where I worked hard, with determination to graduate with honors and received my Associates Degree in Electronics.

I understand the needs of our low-income students and families and what support is required to ensure their future success. As a parent I know the importance of giving input to the school district about decisions that affect our children. I am proud to be part of the changes that are improving our schools facilities. I want to continue being part of these significant changes. I want to work with the school district to help build a strong base for students and their futures. I want to see under- performing students reach the state standards.

I was born and raised in San Diego. I moved to the Central Coast when I was accepted to UC Santa Cruz, where I went on to be the first in my family to graduate from a four year institution. I also have a MA from Stanford and a teaching credential from CalStateTeach CSUMB. And, when I was done with school, I decided to go right back in- this time as a teacher. I taught at Echo Valley Elementary for six years before deciding to stay home with my then newborn daughter. My husband is a teacher at Castroville Elementary, and I have several family members and friends sprinkled throughout the district. 

As you can see, most of my life has been spent in schools. I have the unique perspective of having been in the classroom and understanding how our decisions in the board room will impact our kids in the classroom. As an elected official, I take this responsibility very seriously and I welcome any and all inquiries to ensure transparent communication between our school district and the community we serve.

My family and I moved to Monterey County in 1994 and have been residents of Oak Hills for over 20 years.  For most of those 20 years, I have participated actively in the community.  I have served as a volunteer for various local non-profits such as the Artichoke Festival, Relay for Life, and Castroville Coalition. I have two daughters that attended North Monterey County High School where I also served as President, Vice President, and Secretary for the Band Boosters Club and the Bond Oversight Committee for Measure H.  I was instrumental in facilitating the band’s tour to China in the Spring of 2013.  Other current memberships include serving on the board of the North County Christian Center in Castroville.  I am a banking professional and have worked in that industry for over 30 years and I believe my background and experience will provide a good perspective as a Trustee.  I would like to continue to give back to my community in ensuring our local schools serve our children and community.
