Volunteering my time and assisting my community is in my blood. Since I was 9 years old I have made community service a priority in my life and it is my honor to be able to give back to our community and our school district in the capacity of a Trustee for Placer Hills Union School District. I am a product of this district, starting first at Placer Hills School and then attending Weimar Hills School. After graduating from Colfax High School I went on to get a bachelors degree in Broadcast Journalism from University of Nevada, Reno and my doctorate in law from McGeorge School of Law. Currently I have my own law practice in Auburn, California and am on or have been on the board of numerous non profit and community organizations such as the Auburn Chamber of Commerce, the Auburn Ski Club, Placer Hills Education Foundation (PHEF) and The Ripple Effect.
When my husband and I were choosing where we wanted to live and raise our children I was drawn to the beautiful community where I had thrived. We chose to live in this district and moved our children from the charter school they attended so they could attend schools in the same district where I had gone to school. The schools were a large factor in our decisions when we chose to move. I understand the importance of having a fiscally sound and academically strong school system. I am constantly impressed by our teachers and staff in the district. I am always interested in learning more from our community members and the parents and to learn different perspectives of those affected by the decisions our board makes. I am dedicated to doing what I can to make our schools the best they can be and strengthening our community while doing it.

I grew up in Weimar and attended both Placer Hills and Weimar Hills during my childhood. After graduating from Colfax High School, I went on to major in Spanish at Sacramento State University and to earn a single subject teaching credential in Spanish, and later, a Master's degree in Applied Educational Leadership. I have served as a teacher and also as a school administrator for the past 15 years. As a result of my firsthand experiences, I have a solid foundation of educational knowledge that I will use to help inform board decisions.
In addition to these pieces, I knew early on that I wanted to raise my family in the wonderful community that I grew up in. I have two daughters who attend school within this district, and I am passionate about ensuring that all students receive high quality academic instruction in addition to social skills and social emotional learning. I value the voices of all of our educational partners: students, parents, teachers, administrators, and community members and I am committed to hearing diverse perspectives and ensuring growth in our school community.
