Parental involvement is the key to the success of public education. Citizen oversight is a critical component of any public service.

Having spent the last twelve years volunteering in the classrooms and schools of my three children and serving on many district committees, I now look forward to advocating for all students in Reynolds District. Thanks to voters passing our $45 million bond in November, we now have a new opportunity for citizen involvement. I urge patrons to join or attend their school’s Site Council to keep informed about the progress of the bond projects and participate in discussions around the design plans. Getting more citizens and parents involved in the decisions that effect our schools will benefit everyone.

I have served as PTA president, vice president or treasurer in three Reynolds schools, as well as on numerous school committees. I am on the Board of Directors of Oregon PTA as Region 5 Director. I am on the Site Council at Reynolds High School, have been on the District Facility Committee, and am currently a member of the District Budget Committee. I was co-chair of the bond campaign in November 1998, and chair for the May 2000 and November 2000 campaigns.

I have lived in Troutdale for 25 years and been married for 21 years. My husband and I have three daughters; an 8th grader at Walt Morey, a junior at Reynolds High and a sophomore at MHCC. I graduated from University of Kansas in 1975 with a BFA in Design. I worked in advertising at Fred Meyer and Tom Moyer’s Luxury Theatres before having children. Since then, I have volunteered more than I have worked outside the home.

I look forward to serving my community as a member of the Reynolds School District School Board of Education.
