"Help me continue my work for Kent County Public Schools."

About Me

I am currently serving the final year of my first term on the KCPS Board of Education. I am proud of the work that our board has been able to accomplish but there is always more to do. I would like to have the opportunity to continue to work to move our schools forward and help our students succeed.

As the youngest daughter of a career United States Marine Corps father I have lived in various parts of our country including North Carolina, California, Hawaii, Virginia and Maryland. Between Kindergarten and graduation from Crossland High School in Prince George's County, Maryland I attended 6 different schools. I also spent a year studying Elementary and Special Education at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh.  Though teaching ultimately did not turn out to be my calling I have enormous respect for those who dedicate their lives to our children.

My husband, Mark, and I moved to Worton from the "western shore" in 2003. We have two children currently attending KCPS schools. When I am not shuttling my kids hither and yon I run a website design business. I work primarily with local non-profits, artists and small businesses. I am proud to be a founding member of the school advocacy group Support Our Schools. I like to volunteer and be involved in our community and have helped organize the Chestertown Tea Party Festival, the Chestertown HP Festival and I am on the Marketing Committee for the Garfield Center for the Arts.

Accomplishments

Board of Education members must work together to make the best decisions for our students and schools. No individual member can achieve this on their own. We have different backgrounds, different perspectives and different goals for our time on the board. But we can not accomplish anything without the support of the other members. We have all been chosen by our community to serve our schools to the best of our ability. I am grateful for the thoughtful deliberations and decisions that the board has made.

Some accomplishments from my time on the board include –
