Community - In today’s political environment, we need strong champions for our public schools to promote the fundamental importance of education for the well-being of our community. I led the fight for Full-Day Kindergarten by bringing our community together to give our kids a strong start to their education. I am running for School Board to ensure that we get everyone in Fairfax County on board to champion our students. Together, let’s build the finest public school system in the United States.

Innovation - We must not relinquish our role as an educational innovator, and as a school system, we must ensure that we are investing in our students properly—providing critical thinking and the rest of the 21st Century Learning toolkit for all of our kids. I advised Fortune 500 companies as a business innovation leader and served on the American Embassy School Board when my family was posted overseas.

Opportunity - I believe that all children should be given the opportunity to succeed in Fairfax County. I have fought for the right kind of change at FCPS by serving on the PTSA, advocating for STEM, world languages, and the arts, and leading the county-wide Human Relations Advisory Committee. I know how to get things done. We need leaders who know how to focus on the most important issues to make change happen.
