Hello Neighbor!

Here's my official video introduction as your School Board candidate for Alexandria City Public Schools in District C.  You can also take some time to learn more about my priorities and stand on the issues

I firmly believe my education in Virginia's public school system gave the foundation and opportunities that have allowed me to graduate from high school and college with honors, study and work in 6 different countries, and continue to excel with professional experiences from the courtroom to the U.S. Embassy in Mozambique to the FBI. Two of my favorite experiences include teaching English to students in Mexico and building stoves for rural indigenous communities in the highlands of Guatemala.

As a candidate for the ACPS School Board, I will not only use my experiences in global diplomacy to work with the Board Members towards impactful changes, but I will also  highlight all the wonderful things ACPS has done for our community’s youngest residents, and push for the equipment and supplies they need to succeed. Even if you don't have a child in ACPS, remember that when our schools are at their best, our community is at its best!  

Thank you for taking the time to learn a bit more about me and for your support this year during my race to become your local School Board member in District C.

I hope you are as excited as I am to embark on this journey, and I look forward to your support, your vote, and having conversations with you about your priorities for the City of Alexandria, VA Public School District!
