“One of my goals in life is to make a positive difference in my community. I’m a firm believer that education is a great equalizer in society. I believe the best way to impact the minds of our youth is to be a part of the educational process. Being on the St. Joseph School District Board of Education allows me to be a part of the policy making process which impacts the education of our youth.

"I believe in our students, in our staff, and that this community has huge potential. I would like to see that potential fulfilled. I really do care about our kids. I want to make sure that they are prepared to be successful in their lives once they leave the halls of our schools. I want them to have every advantage that would ensure this success so that they can become the person that they are meant to be. I want to continue to be an advocate for our kids."

"I was elected while my son was in high school, and ran for office because I believe that having a parent on the school board helps to keep the Board of Education focused on the immediate needs of the students. I plan to continue providing that same grounding by staying in contact with  current students and parents. If you have a problem/question, I hope you reach out to me whether you’re a parent, staff member or student. I want to hear your situation and help you and your student(s) have a good outcome. Thank you for entrusting me with the responsibility of your children’s education."

"The quality of our schools and the educational opportunities within will be a great predictor of the future quality of life of our community. I love St. Joseph and will work to make this city a better place to call home. I desire for children to learn in an environment where teachers and staff enjoy their jobs, where the community pursues and invests in innovative and exceptional personnel, facilities, technology, and curriculum. I strive to make our district a better place to learn, a better place to teach, and a place you trust is using your invested tax dollars."

"I want to be an SJSD Board member because I hope to bring a voice of reason to the Board as we attempt to make right the financial wrongs of the past, and as we move forward towards an amazing future! Doing what is best for kids will be what drives every decision I make as a school board member. I understand the importance of valuing the perspective of the educator in dealing with school issues. Trust, experience, and passion is what I will bring to the SJSD School Board."

"The St. Joseph School District recently went through a very turbulent time. The District is now on the road to recovery and the greatness it has known in the past. I saw an opportunity to use some of my experiences to aid in this endeavor. There is nothing more important in our community than preparing our youth for their future. We, the people enjoying life in this district, are their only option. We can't let them down."
