    What she likes most about serving on the Board:
    I love the idea that I can be involved in decisions that directly impact our children and our community.  My experience as an attorney allows me to advocate on behalf of others.  Serving on the Board will allow me to continue to be that advocate by ensuring that all children in District 50 receive a quality education.
