A Manassas Park resident for the past nine years, I have come to love and admire this city I call home. As a Council Woman I will work hard to bring us through these fiscally challenging years without compromising the integrity of our city. My goal is to help Manassas Park become a destination for people to live and work.
As an educator and a School Board member, I understand the value of public education. I will prioritize our schools, and work hard to keep them funded and supported. A huge benefit of living in Manassas Park is having a small, tight knit community, and that is reflected in our schools. I will be sure they remain that way.
The same applies to our public services. We have the benefit of wonderful police and fire, and I will support them to the best of my ability. After teaching at the Community Center for the past two years, I have learned the value of the services they provide to the community. I will fully work to support and enhance our parks and recreation.
I believe the key to success in this City is drawing in new business. I look forward to working together to find ways to attract business to this area in order to fund our services, lower our taxes, and also make Manassas Park a better place to live.
My husband and I moved here nine years ago, after he left the military. We were attracted to the small city feel close to DC. We immediately became involved in our community, and I joined the Architectural Review Board for the Blooms Crossing Homeowner’s Association, and am currently serving as the chairwoman.
I have taught music lessons to the children of Manassas Park ever since moving here. I love the diversity and the passion our children have. A few years ago I was fortunate enough to get appointed to our School Board, and I have enjoyed collaborating with others to find ways to benefit and improve our schools.
I have two young boys at home, and my full time job is currently taking care of them. I hope to instill in them a sense of service and teach them to give back to their community.
I am eager to work together with my neighbors to find ways to improve our city. I look forward to serving Manassas Park!
