I am so grateful for the opportunity to serve our school district in this capacity.

We have two daughters: Rachel, a senior, and Claudia, a sophomore, at Rockford High School. I earned my B.S. in Finance from New Mexico State University.   I currently work as a tax manager for Crowe Horwath LLP and have been with this firm for 17 years. In my spare time, I enjoy cooking, playing golf, and family road trips.
