She is passionate about assisting students, families, schools, communities and organizations to develop and build the futures they envision. She has teamed to design, develop and fund many programs such as TigerTime (a 7-12 flex-time for social-emotional learning and career development) and PowerZone (a K-6 After-School and summer school program) for her district and community. Currently, she is spear-heading the development of a $600,000 multi-district grant which (if awarded) will serve 7-12 students in five schools.
