Teaching all, Reaching all

As your representative on the Urbandale School Board, I am honored to work with experts who support my belief that every child deserves a free, comprehensive and well-rounded education.

In a climate full of uncertainty and division, I think that a strong local government is more important than ever.

My parents chose to raise me in Central Iowa because of the high value we put on public education. When deciding where to raise our children, my husband and I chose Urbandale for it’s strong schools and community. I want to help make sure Urbandale remains both student-focused and educator-friendly in this tumultuous environment.

Areas of Focus 

Equity, Diversity and inclusion 

I believe that every Urbandale student deserves equal access to excellent teachers, curriculum and 21st century facilities. 



Iowa has always been proud of its strong public education. I believe that we need to invest in our teachers and support staff to ensure that we maintain a high standard of excellence.  



A strong district needs 21st century facilities that provide optimal learning environments, safe conditions and long-term usability. 


As your school board member, I would work to advocate with state legislators for adequate education funding . Additionally, I will support sound fiscal policy to ensure responsible use of valuable tax-payer investments. 


An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.
