We are facing unprecedented times. Our first goal needs to be to work together to get students, faculty and staff back to the classrooms full time! None of us is smarter than all of us. And, my plan is to work together, the board, the community, faculty, staff, local businesses, local colleges and universities and others to help prepare our students for the future.  

My unique perspective of being the parent of a young student allows me to see first-hand the pressures and struggles of young students today. In addition to having a young student, my job in software technology allows me the opportunity to work with other K12 schools, colleges and universities across the Midwest region. This allows me to offer a different lens to look at situations and what other institutions of learning are doing to prepare students. Lakeville Schools are fantastic! I am here to offer a fresh voice, roll up my sleeves and make Lakeville Schools even better!

About Laura

I am running for Lakeville School Board because I am passionate about education. I believe K-12 education sets the foundation from which people change the world. I love Lakeville Schools. I have a 3rd grader and a 2.5-year-old. I want to be a fresh voice to help shape education for children who will someday change the world.

In my full-time job, my clients are higher education institutions and the largest K12 school districts across 6 states. On a daily basis, I discuss trends, challenges and solutions for students of all ages. My understanding of challenges of K12 students across the region and nation will bring a unique perspective which will help us look at challenges differently.

I will make a great Lakeville school board member because I bring the voice of the parent and a software technology professional. Education today is much different than it was 10 or even 20 years ago. Raising children today is different even without the challenges that today’s educational needs brings. I will bring a the fresh voice that is relevant to today’s children.
