I have been involved with the La Mesa-Spring Valley School District (LMSVSD) since I began volunteering in my older son's kindergarten class in 2005. Besides classroom volunteering, I have been a room parent, School Site Council member, and District Advisory Council representative. For over four years I have been a member of the LMSVSD Budget Study Committee and during this time I have developed a comprehensive knowledge of school budgeting and education policy.
I have also held a variety of PTA positions, including PTA President at Glenn E. Murdock Elementary, and Vice President for Legislation for the Mt. Helix Council of PTA, which represents the 21 school unit PTAs of the La Mesa Spring Valley district. On behalf of the PTA, I have met with state legislators and their staffers, district administration, and regularly attend school board meetings. I attended La Mesa Spring Valley elementary and middle schools as do my two children. Beyond my volunteer activities with the school district, I am a youth soccer coach and Little League scorekeeper and game announcer.
