With over 14 years of local and international teaching and school leadership experience, I have strong convictions about the role of public education in shaping healthy communities. I am a strong believer in service and civic engagement. Throughout my life I've been committed to giving back to my community. As a long term resident of Wheaton and a graduate of Wheaton North High School, and with four children currently enrolled in the district, I bring a depth of insight into the unique strengths and opportunities of our community, and I believe I have a compelling vision of where we can go from here.
