I received a Bachelor of Arts from University of Maryland Baltimore County in 1993. I majored in psychology and focused my studies on child development and education. As an undergraduate, I participated in two large-scale faculty research projects and presented my own research as a part of one of those projects at a conference for the American Psychological Association.
I have a diverse background in private industry, government contracting, and volunteer work. Positions have included human resources management, logistics for the US Navy, retail management, flight coordinator and sales for a jet charter company, and several volunteer roles for my childrens’ schools and community theaters. I have also homeschooled our four children since 2009, though two of our children have successfully transitioned to public high school. I believe my diverse background will make me an ideal board member for determining budget and policy related to the many aspects of a well-run school system.
