Biography:
Born and raised on Guam, my care and belief in our families are strongly rooted.  Returning from Simmons College with a BA in Human Services Early Childhood, I began my teaching career.  After earning a MED in Administration Supervision from UoG, I earned a PhD in Human Development Family Studies from Oregon State.  Returning home, I resumed my professional life in schooling - GDOE, GCC, UoG.  Always a teacher, I continue to dedicate my life to developing opportunities so that every person will realize their potential so that they may be healthy, productive, and happy. This work begins in the beginning years - sunrise -  and spirals throughout  to the sunset years.  

My career focuses on early childhood, work force development, diversity, and fostering respect and regard for all ages at all stages.

Platform:
"State Preschool:  By partnering with licensed care centers, our public school system can curb crime and welfare rates while strengthening work force development and healthy lifestyles.  For every $1 we invest early on, we gain $5-8 in return.  If you believe that early childhood education - where self esteem, confidence, motivation, the whole child is addressed -  is key to our future, please vote for me.

Teacher Preparation Programs:  Teacher prep programs must be reformulated to address the needs of today.  How to think, work well with others, use technology, embrace diversity, work with families, partner with the business community must be the competency set for all graduating teachers.  If you believe that teacher prep programs need to be updated for this millennium, please vote for me.

Buying Local, as required by procurement law, must be enforced.  Ensuring that our students are provided nutritious food that is culturally respectful must occur.  Supporting our farmers must be a priority.  Produce -  local bananas, papaya, calamansi, pika - should be found in every hotel and store.  Every visitor should leave with a taste of Guam.  If you believe that agriculture and aquaculture should be invested in, please vote for me.

Living longer is confirmed by the 2010 Census.  As well, family size is shrinking.  We must ensure there are supports and services in housing, health, recreation, transportation, customer service that respect the very people who worked hard to give us our life.  If you believe it is now, our turn, to support our manamko, please vote for me.

Veterans have served and sacrificed so that we may have choice and opportunity.  It is now our turn to provide them a high quality of life - that includes health care, transportation, employment, housing, recreation.  If you believe it is now our duty to provide service for those who sacrificed, please vote for me.

Behavioral wellness, from birth throughout life, must be prioritized.  Systems of care for all ages and stages must be strengthened.  Physical and emotional health must be nurtured from the start.  If you believe that health and behavioral wellness are foundational to our quality of life, please vote for me.

Campaign Slogan: 
"Families First!"
