What factors most strongly influenced your decision to run for the School Board?
I grew up in Coppell, and I'm a proud product of Coppell ISD schools. Now my kids are a part of Coppell ISD too. I'm also a former educator, so education is both my passion and my past profession. All of these reasons influenced my decision to run for the school board
