Kelly has volunteered in LBUSD schools for 7 consecutive years, giving the students of Laguna Beach thousands of hours each year in hands-on, outdoor learning opportunities.
Kelly helped bring the Geo Dome to TOW, by collaboratively working with parents, teachers, the school district, and corporate and community funders through an 18- month project.
Kelly has two students in the district. With her youngest one in elementary school, and another in middle school, she's sure to be in touch with LBUSD schools for many years to come.
Kelly's leadership, enthusiasm and collaboration with teachers and district staff were instrumental in leading LBUSD and TOW Elementary to earn the U.S. Department of Education highest achievement as a Green Ribbon School and host the state superintendent, Tom Torlakson, along with 60 other green schools at the TOW campus.
Kelly's experience as an educator includes not just classroom teaching, but also substitute teaching K-12, outdoor education, and early education. She's a fully credentialed teacher. Kelly knows early education too; she's owned and operated a preschool. She understands what's new in education; having recently completed a Masters in Education with a specialization in e-learning.
Kelly and her husband have lived in Laguna Beach for 7 years. Having experience in schools in other areas of Orange County, and also across the U.S., has given her a great perspective on the unique value Laguna Beach Unified School District provides to students and the community as a whole.

I am honored to be running for the Laguna Beach School Board.
It would be my privilege to play a part in continuously striving to better the education of children here in Laguna Beach. I pledge to serve collaboratively, proudly and passionately. I bring deep experience as an educator, parent, community member, and PTA leader to make great decisions for our district, for our children. I stand energetically ready to serve.
With COVID-19, our schools face their biggest challenge yet.
These challenges require, more than ever, strong leadership and professionalism from our school board.
