Experience

The School Board fulfills three important functions for our district including selecting and supporting the superintendent, creating and monitoring educational policies, and providing budget oversight for millions of dollars of tax revenue and expenditures. With my combination of business, nonprofit, and Minnesota school board experience, I am well positioned to work as part of the leadership team.  As a new member of the ISD 196 team, I would be able to provide a fresh perspective and promote innovation to keep our schools great.
