As a stay-at-home mother of four, I am deeply connected to the needs of children today. Three of our children are in the Sarasota County public school system. I believe the voters of Sarasota County want representation for the needs of the children of this county from a parent who currently has children in our district. I am passionate about child advocacy. Going to school today is vastly different from going to school when I was young. I want to make sure that the needs of all our district's children are recognized and addressed in our public school system so that together with the help of their families, they can have limitless success in their academic lives.
