I am a 19 year resident of Santa Monica and long-time active participant in Santa Monica’s education, arts and business communities. If elected, I would become the only mother on the School Board with a child currently enrolled in our District. I bring a broad range of skills and experience, as well as fresh perspective and dedication to the excellence and vitality for which education in SMMUSD is known.
As a School Board member, these are among the issues I will continue to advocate for:
● Clean, environmentally safe, and secure schools
● Healthy school lunches
● Curriculum expansion
● School community engagement
● Development of critical thinking skills
● Protection of student and parent data
● Middle school sports teams
● Fiscal responsibility
My community participation and professional experience include:
SMMUSD Visual and Performing Arts District Advisory Committee (currently serving 2nd term) ● Santa Monica Committee for Racial Justice (2015 - Present) ● SMMUSD Local Control Accountability Plan Consultation Committee (2015 - 2017) ● Roosevelt Elementary Site Council (2015 - 2017) ● Santa Monica Public Arts Committee (2004 - 2014) ● Account Executive, ArtNews & Division of Time Inc. ● Advertising Director, Art & Auction and other art/culture/travel/design related publications
