A Passion for Education

My husband and I are blessed to live in Torrance, where our two children go to school in the Torrance Unified School District.  I am running for School Board to ensure all students are prepared for the opportunities and challenges of the 21st Century.


As a Torrance Commissioner for over 14 years, I worked to help make local government more efficient. I want to increase partnership opportunities between the City and School District.


My passion is education. Starting as a room mom to now serving on boards of educational organizations.

I would be honored to earn your vote.
