What is your background?

Clare from Parker asked, "Where did you grow up and attend college?"


I grew up in Florida, where I was born, and moved to Highlands Ranch with my husband 18 years ago. We have two grown children who are both in college now.

I’m a first generation college graduate, who graduated in four year from James Madison University where I earned a double major in International Business and in Management, and also a minor in French. I was recruited by the U.S. Department of the Navy as a contract negotiator and attended classes in the evening while working full time. I graduated with an MBA in Business Economics and Public Policy from George Washington University.

With nearly 30 years of experience and the majority of it focused on public education, my work has mostly involved strategy and communications
