In the Canyons School District, every classroom, hall, and playground resonates with the promise of a brighter future. My four children give me a personal view into this journey. However, my drive goes beyond just my family. It’s about ensuring every child in our district has opportunities to thrive, be challenged, and succeed.
Having earned my Bachelor of Science Degree at Western Governors University and my Master of Business Administration (MBA) at Westminster University, I appreciate the profound impact of purposeful education. Every decision I make as your representative is underscored by a commitment to high-quality learning experiences, robust support for educators, and fortifying our schools as pillars of safety and innovation.
Our community, united in its vision for our students, propels me forward. In every endeavor, my focus remains unwavering: championing an education system where every student can realize their full potential.
My commitment to the Canyons School District is deeply rooted in hands-on involvement. Since my eldest child began their educational journey, I’ve actively participated in pivotal community roles:
- Four terms as School Community Council Chair, collaborating directly on School Improvement Plans and allocation of resources to drive academic excellence.
- Two terms as PTA President, leading initiatives to enhance school experiences.
- Two terms as Council PTA President, working at a broader level to address overarching educational concerns.

Depth of Experience & Dedication
For nearly two decades, I’ve been committed to service and leadership in the Utah Air National Guard, cultivating a unique skill set that I now bring to every new challenge:
- Guardian of Information: Over the past seven years, I’ve championed efforts to protect our most sensitive data and streamline operations. My dedication ensures both readiness and trustworthiness, integral to any successful institution.
- Leader & Mentor: Beyond the confines of policy and procedure, my roles in Human Resources have been underscored by a deep sense of leadership and mentorship. From optimizing team dynamics to guiding the next generation of service members, I’ve always placed people at the forefront of my mission.

Whether launching critical health programs or fostering essential health partnerships — notably our impactful collaborations in Morocco — I am driven by a vision to elevate health standards and enhance worldwide collaboration.
