Through my personal, professional and volunteer experiences, I bring leadership, focus, dedication, teamwork, and involvement in the greater education community. I am rooted in parent involvement and student support, and I bring a business/financial orientation, all of which contribute to a thorough discussion of issues to reach optimal decisions.
It has been a privilege to serve in the Niskayuna School District with dedicated professionals, engaged students, active and involved parents, and a supportive community. I urge everyone to come out and vote on May 18.
