About Me

I am currently a 1st-term Cambridge School Committee member, running for re-election. I'm originally from outside Washington, D.C., and have lived in Cambridge with my spouse since 1989. Our two daughters attended the Cambridge Public Schools K-12.

  • I’m trained in educational research and have a graduate degree in child and adolescent development.
  • I worked for five years as a language specialist at a school for Deaf students, and for fifteen years as a researcher at the Harvard Graduate School of Education and Lesley University.
  • I’ve had advanced training in qualitative research and statistics, and understand data and how to ask good questions.
  • I was an activist CPS parent, and know that schools can only thrive if parents are active and involved.
