As someone who has made a career out of advocating for children and a proud parent of three young children in the Savannah-Chatham County Public School System, I have an expectation that our school system will provide an excellent public education no matter what zip code they live in. I am running to be your School Board Representative because I value public education and know the change that it can bring to a child, family, and community. I promise to work with parents, teachers, and all of the community to ensure every voice is heard. I am a proud resident of Chatham County who chooses to raise my children here and help the next generation.
