Education changes lives.
I studied hard in school to earn a full scholarship to college to get a degree in Chemical Engineering. This changed my life and the lives of my family. I’ve seen firsthand how a college education can positively impact lives and future generations.
I am a mom, a business owner and I believe in giving back to my community. I consider myself an advocate and product of a meaningful education. JCCC deserves a trustee who understands the connection between education and success.
The college is a cornerstone of our community, enhancing minds since 1969. Access to college is an important issue to me. This includes, transportation, connectivity, and affordability. I’m also committed to making sure the college meets the needs of students and businesses of the future. I want to help improve career and opportunity pathways that stretch beyond JCCC doors.
I will listen, learn and be a good steward of the college.
I am committed to excellence at JCCC
