Educational Background
Bachelor of Arts in Business, Michigan State University

Occupation / Employment
Former operations and marketing executive in large, luxury hotels, private city and country clubs.  Responsibilities included financial and human resource management across multiple properties on different business models.  Currently focusing on family, Shaker Heights schools and community.

My family and I have lived in Shaker for the past 10 years.  Our children attend Woodbury and Shaker Middle School.  Utilizing my business skill set I have successfully and productively served our schools in several capacities including various PTO roles and Presidencies, PTO Council President, Chair of A Night for the Red & White and Chair for the successful 2017 $30 million capital bond issue. I have implemented several community building, outreach and fundraising programs like the Chromebook education sessions to educate parents on our transition to a Google District, Senior Clap Out, and placing the Woodbury Bell at the front of the school with a new paver garden and more.  I look forward to using my energy, experience, focus and commitment to work for you and our children on the Shaker Heights City School Board of Education.

Working with my fellow Board Members I will create an environment of proactive community engagement and communication.  Leveraging strong relationships developed over years of collaborating with our Administrators, Board of Education and community we can build a true bond between our stakeholders and our schools providing forums for public discussion and bridging community and city projects with district initiatives.  We can utilize the wealth of creativity, ingenuity and experience available throughout Shaker Heights to tackle and produce innovative solutions to school funding and policy.
