It is an incredible feeling to put my experience to work for you and your students.
It is an incredible feeling to put my experience to work for you and your students. I am on a mission to close the equity gap and improve student outcomes. Along with being an associate member liaison to the California Association of School Business Officials and a member of the California Department of Education’s “Closing the Achievement Gap” task force, I am an active advocate of community outreach for schools nationwide.
With nearly two decades at SI&A, I draw experience from my longstanding relationships and involvement with education organizations like CSBA, COSA, TASA, and CASCWA, to share successful strategies with other districts. I've worked with hundreds of K-12 school district executives providing solution consulting in the areas of school attendance, organizational effectiveness and communication, special education, and state mandated program compliance. I am a passionate champion for children and recipient of the California Association of Supervisors of Child Welfare & Attendance’s “Friend of CASCWA” award.
Thank you for the opportunity to connect and support our students!
