I ask for your vote this November for Nevada County School Board of Education, Trustee Area 1.
Founder & Executive Director of Bridge Network/Certified Coach/Facilitator
This specific school board seat oversees the same demographic in which I currently love and excel in serving at risk youth and under-performing students.
I have an AS Pre-Nursing Degree from ARC, a BS Degree in Business Management from William Jessup University. I am Certified as Health Coach, Youth Mental Health First Aid, a Human Trafficking awareness trainer.
I advocated for getting Human Trafficking curriculum in CA Schools, and helped get the CASE (Californians Against Sexual Exploitation) Act on the ballot for Nevada and Placer counties in 2011-2012.
I am bi-lingual in Spanish, and my prior work experience was 25 years in the healthcare industry ranging clinical environment to corporate operations with medical device companies.
In 2018 I received the Woman of the Year award from the CA Women’s Caucus.
My family and I moved to Lake of the Pines in Nevada County in 2004. One of the decision factors for moving into the area was the academic performance at Bear River High School and their football program.
If you are looking for a candidate that’s unique, diverse and an out-of-the-box thinker than your traditional educator’s background school board member, then I’m your candidate!
Today we have insurmountable challenges for students, schools and families: the COVID pandemic, economic pressures, future revenue deficits, mental health crisis’ and the current racial tensions throughout the country.
We need a different perspective for Nevada County School Board of Education.
I bring real life experiences, feet on the ground and a pulse for the needs of our students and families.
I am a voice for students, parents/guardians and especially for the under-served and the unheard.
I am the Founder and Executive Director for a non-profit organization that has received numerous awards and acknowledgements for our community work with marginalized and under-served families which include the under-performing students, at-risk youth, undocumented families, justice-involved and exploited, sex-trafficked youth.
