Public Schools are the Heart of Scotts Valley

I started Save Our Schools eight years ago because I was concerned about my daughters’ education. I knew getting involved was the right thing to do and I will use that same passion to do what’s right when I serve on the City Council.

As a proven leader, I have demonstrated my ability to bring people together around issues we all care about. I started Save Our Schools Scotts Valley eight years ago to combat the lack of state funding for our schools, and led two successful campaigns: Measure K to retain teachers and keep class sizes manageable, and Measure A allowing us to rebuild the aging middle school.

In my role as President of the Scotts Valley Educational Foundation, I helped to raise nearly $1 million to fund school libraries, expand counseling services, provide technology in the classroom, and underwrite advanced teacher training. While I was President of the Scotts Valley Friends of the Library, we introduced new programs for our children and seniors.
