I’m excited at the opportunity to participate in the Greene Site Council. This year my oldest daughter will be starting 6th grade at Greene. In addition, I have two other children who attend Duveneck Elementary School. As a new parent, I want to meaningfully contribute to this community by helping to shape and achieve the school goals we have set out for ourselves. Like many of you, I believe in building a learning environment that supports the whole child. Additionally, I believe that the best results are achieved when faculty, parents, and students work together. At Duveneck, I regularly volunteered both in and outside of the classroom. This past year, I served on the PTA Executive Board focused on building a more inclusive environment. My professional experiences included roles across marketing, strategy, and technology. And it is my hope that I can draw from all my experiences as a parent, volunteer, and professional to help create the best environment for all of our children. Thank you for your consideration.

I currently have a son at Greene Middle School and would value the opportunity to serve on the Site Council. As a parent, educator and attorney, I am passionate about advocating for students and educators in their efforts to develop engaging, inclusive and healthy educational communities. I am invested in supporting administration, teachers and other interested stakeholders in their efforts to sustain and enhance the curricular and co-curricular educational opportunities offered to our students to equip them to connect with and contribute to an increasingly diverse and global society. In addition to serving in a variety of roles at the University of Michigan related to international education, campus conduct and conflict and policy development and implementation, I co-authored the book Reframing Campus Conflict: Student Conduct through a Social Justice Lens (Stylus, 2009) and taught at the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State University’s Lodestar Dispute Resolution Center. I currently serve as the Senior Advisor to the Vice President for Student Life at U-M. I would bring to this Site Council role this professional experience combined with years of volunteering at the various schools my son attended (we’ve enjoyed the adventure of relocations to the Southwest, Midwest and West Coast). Thank you for your consideration.
