Why I Am Running

As an advocate, a former NPS student, and a current Board Member my number one priority is to make sure student’s voices are heard. I benefitted from a high quality education from our schools, and seek to ensure every single student K-12 receives the same caliber of schooling.

The quality of a town’s education system directly affects the economic vitality of the town, which is why investing in our educational programming such as pre-K and social-emotional learning (SEL) initiatives is critical.

I am running once again to make sure our Board invests in our programs, our students, but most importantly our communities’ future.
