My family and I have lived in this beautiful community for the past 16 years. Our daughter, Kaitlan, just completed her sophomore year at the University of Washington where she is studying marine biology. From the time Kaitlan entered kindergarten at Artondale Elementary, I have volunteered for our schools--from helping at the classroom level, to serving at the school and district levels as well. For the past three and a half years, I have been honored and proud to serve as an elected member of the school board. Recently I was re-elected for my second term as a regional representative for the Washington School Director's Association (WSSDA), Interscholastic Activities Committee, and received two special recognitions from WSSDA for completing a series of courses in leadership and boardmanship.
In addition to my role with PSD, I also currently work full-time as a legislative assistant for the Washington State House of Representatives.
