District-Wide Perspective & Tradition of Public Education / Community Service

I have two children, who have attended 3 of the 7 Burlingame public schools. My daughter attended Washington and Franklin Elementary Schools and graduated from Burlingame Intermediate School (BIS) last year. My son attended Franklin Elementary School and currently is a sixth grader at BIS. I am the only Board member currently running in this election, who still has a child in the Burlingame School District and am proud that I have served as the Board liaison to Washington (early 2016) and Lincoln (2016-present) Elementary Schools. 

I come from a deep tradition of public educators, have an electrical engineering degree and a legal degree, am a Silicon Valley technology executive with over 20 years of experience and strongly believe in and pursue volunteerism and serving our community in a selfless manner.
