Put the children first.
Life is amazing. I have been active with Orchard School since my oldest son started Kindergarten 4 years ago. Orchard School has become my second home and the teachers and staff have become my second family. I have two beautiful sons and I have been married for 15 years. I was born in Newport Beach, California and now my family has been in the Bay Area for 6 years.

Orchard has overcome many obstacles in the past 3 years and I hope that I have contributed to the new and improved Orchard School. About 3 years ago, I was active in the PTA and at that time, staff members felt something was just "not right" with the financial dealings. I was fortunate enough to have Dan Noyes from ABC News, the Grand Jury, FBI, District Attorney and my own personal attorney to investigate the financial misconduct at the school.

I have assisted with properly and legally opening the School Site Council and the Parent Teacher Organization. I am currently the President of the PTO for the 2003-2004 school year.

It would be an honor for me to be elected to the Orchard School District Board of Trustees as I have worked very hard to make things better.
