I am currently serving my first term on the District 3 Board of Education. During this first term, I served on our Class Size Committee. For five years prior to my serving on the board, I attended nearly every meeting of the Board of Education. I felt that this was an opportunity to see firsthand what was discussed at board meetings and to pass the information on to those who were not able to attend the meetings in person. I am also in my sixth year of serving as a volunteer coach in the district, as the director of the school play. Other organizations for which I have volunteered include the Fox River Grove Recreation Council and Cub Scout Pack 357, where I served as Cubmaster and Asst. Cubmaster.

I have held multiple leadership positions over the course of my life. Professionally, I have held both senior sales and operational roles inside the marketing services industry. These positions required the specific combination of thought leadership and financial attentiveness that prepared my organization and my customers for the future. Personally, from 2009-2013 I have served as the President for the Fox River Grove Recreation Council. Prior to that, I served for several years on the Board of Education for the Lord and Savior School in Crystal Lake, IL. I also currently volunteer as a youth group leader at the Lutheran Church of the Atonement in Barrington. These experiences have allowed me to work with business leaders, administrators, teachers, parents, and kids to create positive environments and foster growth.

I have extensive experience serving in my community, as well as 8 years in the legal profession which have provided a great background to be an effective board member. I have enthusiasm for the position, and the desire to help our children prepare for the next stage in life, and to provide our staff and teachers the tools to necessarily prepare for success. In summary, my education, training and experiences provide me the foundation needed to make a good candidate for office.
