TEACHER and STAFF CHOICE

A UCLA graduate and resident of South Carlsbad for over 16 years, I am running for School Board out of an enormous sense of gratitude. My in-laws moved to San Diego in the early '70s and have owned and operated Round Table Pizza Encinitas for the past 45 years. My husband Robert, an Emergency Physician, grew up and attended local schools. After completing his medical training, he and I felt extremely lucky to be able to move back to his hometown so our three young children could benefit from the same award-winning education. Our son, Sean (22), and two daughters, Carolyn (21) and Allison (19), all graduated from EUSD and SDUHSD schools: El Camino Creek Elementary, Oak Crest Middle, and La Costa Canyon High School. More than just educating my children, teachers, administrators, and local leaders have guided them down the path of becoming independent, productive, and compassionate adults. As a PTA President and Board Member, LCC Foundation Board Member, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Board Chairman, National Healthcare Advocate, and Court Appointed Special Advocate for Voices for Children, I have the skills and experience to bring all members of our community together in order to provide the emotional and academic resources our students will need to succeed, especially given the challenges of COVID-19. With collaboration and transparency, I look forward to serving the district that has given three generations of my family so much. I am running for School Board because I care about children and I believe in our schools.
I ask for you to vote for me so that I, as Trustee, can continue to support the future of ALL of our students.
