Why I'm running

Concord is an amazing place to raise children. We have a welcoming community, exceptional parks, and a beautifully renovated Main Street. Now it’s time to put our schools on the list of reasons for young families to move here and stay. That starts with early childhood education, including full day kindergarten, but it doesn’t end there. As a progressive community with the eyes of the state upon us, we should lead the way in proactive programs that equalize opportunity and increase the chance of success for every student.

That’s why I’m running for school board, and I hope I can earn your vote.  

I’m running first because I have one son in elementary school now and one entering kindergarten next year. I believe passionately in the responsibility of the community to shape our shared future through the service of public education. But believing really hard in something isn’t enough. As an experienced corporate and nonprofit leader, I have the business acumen to bring measurable, research-driven decision making to the board.

In my current role as Vice President, Communications for Housing Partnership Network, I have a front row seat watching the interconnection between where you live, the quality of your school, the connectedness of your community, and your chances for lifelong success. Decisions about our schools impact all of us - our safety, economy, and health. If elected, that’s the perspective I’ll bring to the board.

Growing up, my mom was always busy campaigning for someone or something: town officials, the library, safe schools. She even served as a State Representative during my elementary school years. Seeing her work to make our world better stuck with me and shaped my career. And that’s what I want to do for my kids, and every kid in our community.
