I have been a Brookline resident since 1994. My two sons graduated from BHS. Before retiring I taught early childhood education in South Africa, London, New York, and in the Cambridge, MA, Public Schools, where I still volunteer. I am actively involved in a climate group, 350Mass and join with Mothers Out Front activities. I also participate with the Justice Seekers group (UU church) and various campaigns to fight voter suppression. During the pandemic I volunteered with Mutual Aid Brookline. I will bring to Town Meeting a deep knowledge of and commitment to public education.
I reside in Washington Square with my husband Alex and two young children. I’m currently a PTO co-chair at the Driscoll School and part of the PSB CARE (Coalition for Anti-Racism Education) team. I am also a member of the Brookline Equity Coalition, lead a local Girl School Troop and regularly volunteer with the Thrives Program. I have been part of many political campaigns over the last few years including the Building Brookline's Future Team that helped run the debt exclusion override to fund the New Driscoll School. I'm now working on the current Yes campaign for the Pierce School Debt Override and operating override.

As a Town Meeting Member, I listen to neighbors, carefully consider warrant articles and actively support progressive efforts that improve the town.
At work in the commercial insurance industry I am a leader who listens and gathers input to inform solutions and guide technology decisions that improve the human experience and I actively participate in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion efforts.
