A Voice for Our Community
A life-long Warren resident, I was raised, live, work, and volunteer in Warren. I have long been active in our community. I consider serving as your representative to be an honor.
I attended and graduated from Fitzgerald Public Schools as well as attending Warren Consolidated Schools' Macomb Mathematic Science Technology Center. I earned a bachelor's degree in Political Theory and Constitutional Democracy and Elementary Education as well as my master's degree in Science Education from Michigan State University.
I returned to Fitzgerald Public Schools to teach elementary school at Schofield and Mound Park. For the last 13 years, I have worked closely with families helping students to be successful. In 2014, I was honored as the Fitzgerald Public Schools Elementary Teacher of the Year. In addition, I served on the district science committee as well as the chairperson. I am also a proud member of the Fitzgerald Education Association and Michigan Education Association. I have advocated for my colleagues, students and community as a union representative for 10 years. Furthermore I have served as a teacher-leader, advisor to the AAA Safety Patrol, and volunteered with Mound Park's YMCA Girls on the Run Program.
In addition I have been actively involved in civics. For 13 years, I have organized the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life of Warren. I was the event chairperson and a part of event leadership. In 2011, I was honored by the City of Warren as an Outstanding Volunteer of the Year.
