I care about the education and success of ALL children in our school district.

All three of my sons have studied in our public schools. For several years I have volunteered in our schools from Classroom Mom, PTA Board to President of Site Council. As a result, I am aware of the issues facing us today.

I believe that there is no greater joy in life than that spent in the service of others. I started volunteering and helping children while I was in college in India. I helped kids in Mother Teresa's orphanage and read to kids in a School for the Blind . Later I served as President on the Board of Light of Life Trust, a non-profit organization. We educate orphan, street and single parent children in over 400 villages of India. 

As a member of Rotary Club of Foster City, I believe in its motto "Service Above Self"; we do projects and fundraisers that among other things, support our local schools. I also serve on the Board of Friends of Foster City Library, where we are currently working towards a modern "Maker Space".

Along with passion and altruism a community leader or school board trustee also needs to be pragmatic in looking for solutions. With my business, volunteering and non-profit experience I will collaborate with our community, teachers, administrators, Education Foundation, and businesses to help ALL children in our school district succeed.
