We engage in efforts to make Bronxville a walk and bike-friendly town. We petition to keep our village safe for children and everyone to walk and bike around the village without traffic hazards. I am eager to collaborate with like-minded people to initiate and create change." And regarding his desire to serve on the NPC, "Each of us has transcended from being individuals to life partners to parents. Our children and our school community are important aspects of our lives. I can contribute by using my innate leadership skill sets and participating in discussions and policy-making to build a better future for our children in the school and the community. I want to be an integral part of a dedicated committee that focuses on our children's growth while focusing on diversity, equality, and innovation."

In her own words, “As a resident and extremely involved parent over the last ten years, I consider the Bronxville School to be the heart and soul of our small community. I have served the school and community in numerous capacities over the years, and would like to continue by joining the NPC. Of the many characteristics and qualities that truly make Bronxville a special place to live, it is the prevailing sense of community that I would like to continue to see thrive in our village. I hope the NPC will continue to be viewed as a community builder as its members identify and interview candidates for the Board of Education. Our sense of community depends upon individuals setting aside any political views as we come together as parents and concerned citizens to continue to ensure students are offered an exceptional academic and emotional experience at the school.”
