Candidate statement for Bellflower Unified School District member
As a parent, I believe that having a strong partnership between parents, teachers, administrators, employee groups and the school board is a priority. The primary role of a board member is to ensure every student has the resources to achieve academic success. Involvement in athletics, visual and performing arts, clubs and the community play a key role in helping students achieve this success.
On a personal note, I am a 40 year resident of Bellflower having attended BUSD from Head Start through graduating from Mayfair High School. I have three children within the district ranging from preschool to high school age.
Professionally, prior to entering public service, I was a General Manager for a leading health and fitness corporation. I believe my experience in the private sector combined with my experience in the public sector will help me to be an effective board member.
