I’ve lived in Cedar Springs school district for 18yrs!  I built a house in the CSPS school district after deciding this is where I wanted to raise my family.   I’ve been raising my 4 amazing children, Emily (2013 CS grad), Cameron (2016 CS grad), Myla (2018 CS grad) and Ellie (CS 6th grader). They’ve all been strong athletes and students in Cedar Springs and we are a very involved family within our schools, sports and community.  Emily is going to GRCC, Cameron is a Lance Corporal in the United States Marine Corp, Myla is attending CMU and Ellie is a proud student in Mrs. Alvarez’s 6th grade.  I’ve been widowed for 9 years and dedicated myself to proudly raising these awesome children! Life is an amazing journey and I believe in embracing every moment, being the best person I can be and sharing my talents to make the world a better place.

I’m a graduate of Rockford High School and Grand Valley State University, where I earned my Bachelors in PR/Advertising and minor in Communications.   I’m loving my career at Greater Kalamazoo Auto Auction/XLerate group as a Digital Sales Account Manager.  I have a lot of experience holding positions on nonprofit boards such as Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) for 9 years and currently on the American Lung Association RLC for 4 years and their spokesperson. My hobbies include traveling and watching my children at their sports events.

I decided to run for the school board as education is so important to me and I see Cedar Springs as a strong community with a lot of academic and athletic talent.  I want to ensure that we continue to build our district even more! I also want to ensure that we have academic programs for all learning levels to help every student graduate and be successful in their lives.
I look forward to working hard for our students over the next four years!
