I am the current DASD Region 3 School Board Director and look forward to continuing to serve the community in this role. As a member of DASD’s Board, I am part of the team that establishes and reviews DASD’s policies and approves appropriations to ensure just and equitable education opportunities for every student in our district. I am a compassionate and ethical member of our community. Before joining the Board, I consistently attended school board meetings over the past several years, regularly spoke at meetings, and emailed the Board to share thoughts, concerns, and appreciation. Participation in these meetings has allowed me to understand the successes celebrated within our DASD community, challenges before us, and prepared me to serve on the Board.
I have acquired and demonstrated success in project, budget, and stakeholder management throughout my professional career as a geologist, as well as in my community volunteer roles. Professionally, throughout my 22 year environmental consulting career, I rose through the ranks as a geologist in the field interacting with homeowners and business owners and completing technical field tasks, to project management roles such as budget, schedule, subcontractor management, to strategic project closure development, life cycle cost analysis, to providing technical expert testimony. Throughout my career, I have performed cost savings and cost avoidance analyses, presented and participated in public meetings, and provided technical trainings to colleagues at professional meetings and seminars. Three years ago, I left the consulting field to seek out more personally rewarding work as a civil service professional. I am proud to have been able to share my expertise more locally in our community, including helping members of Chester County address environmental impacts after Hurricane Ida.
