I believe that education is a lifelong journey. I have been a member of the Community Advisory Committee to Shasta County Special Education Local Plan Area since 2008. I have been on the CAC board since 2009 and Chair since 2013. My term on the Shasta County Office of Education Board began in December 2018. My interest in Shasta County school administration began as a result of my involvement with special education. I have a background in business administration that focuses on conflict resolution and mediation. My wife and I relocated to Shasta County in 2003. Our son was born here that same year. He is currently a Sophomore at a local public high school. It gives me great satisfaction to join with such an esteemed group as the SCOE Board. The dedication and professionalism of the Board and staff is impressive and focuses on providing the best educational opportunity to all of the students in Shasta County. Together, we can do great things.
