Growing up in Castro Valley, I was involved with the CVUSD’s music programs in elementary, middle, and high school.  Now that I have two young children who will attend CVUSD schools, I want to ensure they will have the same opportunities, exposure, and involvement with the performing arts programs. Besides serving as a way to continue my love of the arts, being on the Castro Valley Arts Foundation board allows me to further serve the community.  My Aunt Kirsten was a board member, and I am honored to carry on her commitment to the arts in Castro Valley.
