I bring experience from tested collaborative leadership through organizations like Maine Interfaith Youth Alliance, Seeds of Peace, King Fellows, YMCA Board, and I’m Your Neighbor and as a current member of the Portland School Board.

For the past decade, I have worked extensively with stakeholders across educational, non-profit, justice, and advocacy-based organizations to find common ground and solutions to complex systemic challenges.  I have experience collaborating with central office, multiple parent teacher organizations, Casco Bay, Portland and Deering High Schools, and the Maine University System.

As a parent, I have spent the past nine years actively involved in the school system and volunteering in the classroom.

As an elected representative, I will leverage my years of leadership experience in community and parent and youth engagement for the benefit of the community.
