OLATHE IS MY HOME 

Growing up in the Olathe School District, I am very familiar with the Olathe community and educational opportunities here in Johnson County. Our family moved to Olathe in 1988. I attended Indian Creek Elementary, Pioneer Trail Junior High and Olathe East High School. Class of 99' Hawks! I went on to receive my Bachelor’s in Business Administration from Baker University and a Masters of Science in Education degree from the University of Kansas. Public School provided me with the tools to go on to have a successful career, even as a Mother of two girls.

A CAREER OF SERVICE

Volunteering in my community has always been a pillar of my character. I enjoy helping coach our daughter’s basketball teams and finding ways to connect to our youth in positive ways. I would not be the person I am today without the mentoring and teaching of many outstanding coaches and educators I encountered in the Olathe School District during my childhood.

Finding ways to give back and feel connected in a community are important. I had the opportunity to lead the University of Kansas Alumni Chapter in San Diego, as well as participate as a BIG for Big Brothers Big Sisters San Diego after college. I returned to Kansas City to raise my children where we have strong public schools but the many opportunities I engaged in San Diego always kept me close to home.

I have actively taken many leadership roles in our community. Serving as a board member for the Madison Park Homes Association as well as serving on the City of Gardner Planning Commission. I currently have my emergency substitute license in Kansas and attend our district site council meetings.

I also have career experience in public schools, serving in a variety of positions such as an emergency substitute teacher, payroll and compliance coordinator and as a high school bookkeeper. I value the role parents play in our public schools as volunteers, student advocates, and cheerleaders.

Together we can continue to prepare our children for their futures and create citizens that are educated, developed socially and emotionally with integrity and accountability. Students like me will continue to give back to their community that invested in them at the time they needed educators and mentors the most.
