As a candidate for the Plainfield Board of Education, I would like to take a moment to share with residents who I am, why I’m running for reelection, and what they will gain from my term in office.

I am a product of the great New Jersey public school system and graduate of Middlesex County College. My husband and I are the proud parents of a child attending Cedarbrook K-8 Center. I am a licensed Realtor with the State of New Jersey and a member of the North Central Jersey Association of Realtors, National Association of Realtors. In sales, I have held positions as sales associate, consultant, team leader, manager, mentor, trainer, and coach. In addition, I am currently president of the Union County School Boards Association.

What motivates me to serve on the Plainfield Board of Education is our child. It is my passionate belief and faith that every child entering one of our 14 school buildings every day is SMART, CREATIVE and CAPABLE.  I believe ALL our children can comprehend and master any high-level curriculum placed before them. Our teaching staff is critical to developing each child to their highest potential. As a board member I will continue to support the efforts of every dedicated, highly motivated staff member that is working toward this effort. Along with my fellow board members, I will continue to push to raise the bar FOR OUR CHILDREN and to create a culture and climate of excellence and inclusion.

I believe I’m the right person for this job because of my deep concern for our children’s education and the skills I’ve developed throughout my career. I will work hard to  develop and implement a strategic plan that engages all stakeholders so that the Plainfield Public Schools becomes a top-tier school system where our students succeed every single day.
