THOUGHTFUL | COLLABORATIVE | LEADERSHIP
I am excited to announce I am running as a Candidate for Manhattan Beach Unified School District (MBUSD) School Board. The next several years will be increasingly challenging with the new distance learning and safety standard norms and continued budget challenges. To face these challenges, I can bring a powerful mix of experience in Community Leadership - Manhattan Beach PTA, Manhattan Beach Education Foundation (MBEF) and LA County Natural History Museum Board; Business Experience - Northrop Grumman, Amazon.com, Mercer Management Consulting and Home Depot; and Education - MBA and B.S. in Math and Minor in English. Finally and most importantly I am a mom of an incoming MBMS eighth grader and your neighbor. I look forward to being a thoughtful and collaborative partner to you, so we can make every MB student's potential a reality.

WHAT SETS ME APART?
MBUSD School Board would be her full time job - Meeting with and responding to Community members, participating in committees, partnering with admin and staff, researching best practices and preparing for Board Meetings take a lot of time to do effectively. She can make representing you her top priority.
