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. They are too young to be in our school system, but the oldest will start preschool in the fall. 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!
