As the former Co-Treasurer of Castro Valley Music Parents Society for many years, I have been a long-time supporter of Castro Valley arts programs. Our two sons participated in the CVHS band, jazz band, and wonderful musicals. I look forward to bringing my experience working as a member of the staff of the Regents of the University of California and as a counselor at the California School for the Blind to the Board. I am enthusiastic about supporting the Center for the Arts, which serves the outstanding music and arts programs of the Castro Valley schools and our local community so well.
