    • About

      Orange County Public Schools was recently identified as the 9th largest school district in the nation providing more than 200,000 students with a top-notch education.

      My desire to serve on the Orange County School Board comes from being a mom to two students in Orange County Public Schools, my dedication to advocacy and my proven business experience. From my early days serving as PTA President, SAC Business Partner Representative, creating Foundation Funds, mentoring students and serving on boards focused on public education--all while working as a National Education Professional--I became increasingly passionate about the need for our public schools to provide an excellent education for ALL children.

      The Orange County School Board needs an experienced leader, so we can hit the ground running on day one!

      Ten years ago, I created a bridge from schools to the larger community that did not previously exist through my Schools Public Relations Firm, LightbulbPR, which has developed and increased education engagement two-fold in our community.

      As a National Schools Public Relations Partner Member and officially recognized by the State of Florida as an Adult Education Career Pathways Provider, I work with education professionals in Florida and across the US. My work enables me to interact with various areas of Orange County's public schools including parents, teachers, administrators, district leaders and the broader business community.

      I believe deeply in our teachers and administrators who work tirelessly to provide our students with an amazing education. My experience connecting resources across the district will serve District 1 well and lead to increased student success—academically, socially and emotionally.
