I came from a family who deeply valued the importance of education and knew the benefit of living in a great school district such as Wyoming.

I will focus on continuing the tradition that Wyoming has earned for having a great educational system and I'll work to keep our competitive advantage and strive for excellence in everything we do.  

With over 20 years of experience volunteering in Wyoming, over 6 years serving on several boards, and 3 years living internationally, I know what it takes to solicit diverse points of view, unite people to find solutions to move forward as one proud Wyoming.

Two Wyoming High School Students Moderating Virtual Candidate Forum with WINDS on October 27th.

WINDS is hosting two candidate forums, one for city council candidates at 6:00pm and another for school board candidates at 7:00pm. The forum is set up as a Zoom webinar for security reasons, so the chat is disabled and attendees are by default audio/video muted, while participants (moderators, tech support, and candidates) have full participation and the ability to mute/unmute and feature video. All participants and attendees will need a Zoom account (not a paid one, just a login) since it is in Zoom Webinar (not a regular Zoom meeting) format. City Council Forum (6:00pm): https://us02web.zoom.us/j/86534955425... Passcode: 774838 School Board Forum (7:00pm): https://us02web.zoom.us/j/86194536993... Passcode: 449723
