I am a wife and working mother of two. I am running for Carmel Clay School Board, District 1 because I want to strengthen Carmel by preparing our children to be independent thinking and educated citizens. I believe that school board members must be accountable to those who elect us through transparency and communication. If elected, I will focus on a strong academic curriculum, safety in our schools and fiscal responsibility.
I work outside the home as a risk manager and lawyer at a construction company and have 10 years of relevant experience. I am also an engineer. I bring my risk management, contract negotiation and human resources skills to the Carmel Clay School Board.
My construction industry experience also gives me a unique background to understand facilities management. Our community has invested many resources into our school facilities and this investment must be protected.
In my free time, I serve on the Indiana Wish Board of Directors and serve as the president of the Junior League of Indianapolis. As a non-profit board member, I have a proven track record of transparency and fiscal responsibility.
