What would you say the most important issue is before the Board right now?

The most important issues are continuing to educate the whole student. We need to help our children evolve, into world-class citizens through challenging curriculum and life skills.

What would you like the community to know about the West York Area School District?

I’m a 2001 graduate of WYASD. I’m a proud supporter of the West York Community, and I look forward to serving the people!

What makes West York's mission, Every Student Every Day, powerful for you?

What has always made WYASD so special are the teachers, staff, and community! We truly are a family, and for that I’m grateful.

Where do you see the District in 5 years,10 years, 20 years,

and how do you see your role on the Board as an integral part of this?

I’d like to observe our current board, and it’s policies before answering this question.

Where might we find you on the weekend?

You’ll find me at a sporting event with my husband and two children. Basketball, baseball, football, or coaching a volleyball game at York College.

What might people be surprised to know about you?

I was a cheerleader for WY before finding volleyball!

What is one piece of advice you would share with our High School seniors?

Experience life and not things. Take the opportunity to do as many internships as possible, and travel as much as you can through your education. You’ll be astounded by the lessons you’ll learn.

What would you do even if you didn’t get paid to do it?

Coach sports
