I am a 26 year resident of District 214 and my children have attended Rolling Meadows High School since 2014. They have been involved in band, theater, robotics, and other activities, and as a family we have experienced the range of school programs, including honors classes and career education, and have seen what’s great and where improvements may be needed.
Since fall 2020, when the board’s Covid decisions highlighted the need to pay attention, I have been a regular attender of board meetings. I have researched the good and bad through both news reports and FOIA requests and have been the primary contributor to the website D214parents.com, where I have documented what I have learned.
My volunteer experience includes serving as Hospitality Coordinator at Our Lady of the Wayside Church, Treasurer for the Rolling Meadows Music Boosters, Advancement Coordinator in Boy Scout Troop 161, the “milk captain” at Our Lady of the Wayside School, and as a volunteer livestreamer at Wayside Church.
Professionally, I am a credentialed actuary, now employed for a major health insurance company, after many years as a pension consulting actuary. You may have seen my articles at Forbes or my commentaries at the Chicago Tribune. My daily work involves problem-solving and analyzing data, skills which I can bring to the district.
