Sally is also very active in her community having served on the Community Watch Committee, Library Board, Family Advisory Board, where she served as chair, and the Charter Review Committee. She was also a founding board member of The Firehouse Theatre where she focused on increasing children's programing and educational opportunities.


Sally's love for children transcends beyond her community involvement to her professional career. She is a Registered Nurse with over 18 years of pediatric nursing experience. In 2018 she was awarded D magazine's Excellence in Nursing award.

Sally's passion for our schools and our community are what inspired her to run for school board.

She feels that all children deserve to have a voice, regardless of their background, and as a school board member she is committed to ensuring all children in our district have access to innovative programming and a quality education.
