I currently serve as the Information Systems Director at the City of McMinnville. I have been employed with the City for 11 years, and have a strong background in civic leadership and public organizations. I graduated from Eastern Washington University with a BS in Computer Science and have lived in the Sheridan area for the last 8 years. I currently have two sons enrolled in the Sheridan School District. I believe Public Education is the one of the most important common experiences that a majority of adults share with each other. Every student in the Sheridan School District has the potential for high achievement and I look forward to serving on the School Board to help sustain and advance the environment that allows them to reach that potential.
