Many summers and evenings were spent helping her mom put up bulletin boards in her classroom or creating materials for her class. Conversations with her dad about life as a director of curriculum, assistant superintendent and superintendent have helped her to understand her client’s needs on a more personal level.

This allows her to assist the client with day to day operations, while planning for the long-term needs of the local educational agency and students.
