Candidate for the Ketchikan School Board - Three Year Term
Background & Experience:
I've lived and enjoyed Ketchikan
since 1978 where I've had the privilege of caring for the citizens
of this community in my role as a registered nurse. I began my
career here as night supervisor and OB nurse which led me to
a decade in family practice and then over a decade at Callisto
Pediatrics. I've had the opportunity to witness many children
growing and thriving in our community who are now raising their
own children here. I guess long-standing advocacy for parents
and children would be my defining role.
I believe that my priority
is the creation of teamwork and advocacy for the high achievement
and healthy development of all the children in this community.
We have a strategic plan addressing some of the issues surrounding
the drop out rate. I would like to foster stronger linkages with
social services, health and community organizations and agencies
to provide community-wide support and services for healthy development
and high achievement for all children.
