I am very excited to begin another term as your Trustee.  I have previously served on the board for 4 years where I helped to re-open Alta Vista School, facilitated our strategic plan process, increased our access to technology and improved the overall vision of our district. 
I am an educational Psychologist and have worked in public education for over 24 years.  My son has received an excellent education through the Auburn Union schools, and we have been very active in his education.
I look forward to addressing the needs of our students, families, teachers and staff, and collaborating in order to achieve positive solutions.  Auburn Union is an amazing district and I look forward to the next 4 years.
