As a Shaker alum and parent of two children educated in the Shaker Heights City Schools, I personally know how an exceptional Shaker education can improve the quality of a child’s life.  Since elementary school, when my mother chose to raise me in the district, I have enjoyed connecting with my fellow community members – of all backgrounds.  I firmly believe that it is my duty to serve the community that has greatly enriched my life for more than 3 decades.
As a graduate of The College of Wooster and Case Western Reserve University’s School of Law, my educational background and non-profit board service have equipped me with the skill-set and experience to effectively represent the interests of the community as a school board member.


With your help, I am excited to launch my campaign to become a member of the Shaker Heights Board of Education.  The election is Tuesday, November 7, 2017.  If elected, I will strive to:

Maintain Shaker’s Reputation

Maintain Shaker’s reputation of providing academically rigorous course offerings that have always positioned our students to succeed post-graduation

Work within the District and City government

Work within the District and City government to ensure fiscal responsibility while collaborating to meet the needs of the entire community and avoid redundant or duplicative services.

Ensure The Academic Success of All Students

Work with the school administration to ensure that teachers, students, and parents are working to ensure the academic success of all students.  This is particularly important for students who feel disconnected and unable to find their passion. When all students excel, our entire community wins.

Improve Communication

Improve the timing, quality and effectiveness of communication between the Administration, parents, and the larger community

Successfully Execute Strategic Plan

Support the school administration successfully completes the goals identified in its strategic plan and works with stakeholders and the community to create a new strategic plan that builds upon our progress.
