How can you help voters in a way that others running for this office cannot? 

I am a mother of a student in school and can relate to navigating the choice offerings to best meet individual student needs. I am a small business owner experiencing the need for graduates with vocational job skills. I have 15 years of professional experience in the safety field.

What would you hope to be remembered for accomplishing after serving in this office? 

During my first term, the Clay County School District moved up to 8th in the state and graduation rates rose more than 10% to a record high. I want to bring different and more diverse options to our students to improve both of these accountability measures even more while advocating for students and parents. I also want to continue my work of less focus statewide on high stakes testing.
