"It takes a village to raise a child" was featured on my Kindergarten shirt. I was lucky enough to be one of those children raised in this incredible place. Growing up I skied at Diamond Peak, played high school golf at the Mountain and Championship Golf Course, and learned the importance of a strong work ethic at my first job as a Tennis Center Host. IVGID gave me a safe place to grow and learn and most importantly, IVGID taught me the true definition of community.
I earned my bachelor’s and master’s degree in accounting from the University of Colorado Boulder. After earning an additional master’s degree in Urban Education Policy from Brown University, I missed the community I had called my home and was drawn back to Incline Village.
I currently, work as a consultant on school funding formulas for states across the country, where I analyze financials and create funding models through collaboration with legislatures and stakeholders.
When I am not working, you can find me mentoring high school seniors in the "We the People" program, attending school board and county meetings, and taking advantage of everything this amazing place has to offer.
My education in accounting finance and policy, my unique perspective as a young-professional, and my ability to both negotiate and compromise make me the strongest candidate for this Board. I am confident in my ability to create understanding and ease public concern regarding financial topics and budgets. I will work as team-member on this board to make informed decisions while eliminating political divide. I will continue to focus on addressing our community's needs and improving the services that IVGID offers.
