About Me: I have been a resident of Piscataway for the last 15 years with my husband and four children, who have attended Piscataway Public Schools. We have enjoyed raising our family in a diverse town like Piscataway where our children have had the opportunity to get an excellent education while participating in many sports and activities. I hold a masters degree in Education, and I am proud to work as a para professional in the Piscataway Township schools. I have worked with special education students for five years.

What I stand for: I believe that we should further invest in our neighborhoods
