I am a lifelong Rochester resident and a proud graduate of Rochester Public Schools, as are my two children, ages 21 and 22. I have a B.A. from Luther College, with a major in Management Information Systems and minors in Computer Science and Psychology (Child Development emphasis). I am running for Seat 2 on the Rochester School Board.
I am a strong believer in the importance of high quality public schools and I have been an advocate for children and education in Rochester for decades. My experience on numerous education-related nonprofits and school district committees provides me with the knowledge and qualifications necessary to be an effective school board member. I have a proven track record of leadership and dedication to education. Please see my Experience page for my long history of community involvement.
I am deeply involved with educational causes because I believe in the value of education and I believe that I can assist in making public education in Rochester even stronger than it already is. I have been a constant presence in the Edison board room, attending the vast majority of school board meetings since 2005, closely following all school district business. I will bring knowledge, history, passion, perspective, and commitment to the Rochester School Board.
