I have lived with my family in Highland Park since 1977, and my children are both graduates of Highland Park High School. I've been on the Board of Education since 2016, serving as President and Vice President during that time. I also chair the Finance, Policy and Negotiations committees. I am a member of the District's Central Leadership Committee.
I also served on the Highland Park Board of Education for three terms in the 1980s and 1990s.
I am very interested in equity, and spearheaded the Board's efforts to give students Chromebooks before the Pandemic, making the internet available to all students. I also worked with the Administration and Board members on the initiative to make Honors and AP classes more accessible to all students. I am a retired Computer Scientist and Entrepreneur, trying to put my experience in technology, finance and negotiations to best use by the schools.
