Meet the Board Candidates

Each spring we hold elections for new members and/or existing members of our board who would like to serve another term. Our goal is to have every member of the Board of Directors elected by the MSCS community.

Board elections are April 4th-22nd. Learn more about the election process here. This year have four candidates: two new and two currently serving who were appointed to the board last year. We'd like all four members to be elected. Remember, you can vote for as many candidates as you like!

What do you think is special about Mountain Sage?

The intentional process of the Mountain Sage Community School gives my children the time to go deep into their learning and strengthening their roots so they can thrive in life.

Do you have children at the school?

I am a stay-at-home parent with two children, Rio in second grade and Sierra in Kindergarten.

Why are you interested in serving on the Board?

I want to take my 20 years of experience and passion for public education and help connect the Northern Colorado Community to this wonderful MSCS. As a member of the Board of Directors, I want to help strengthen the connections between the students, parents, faculty, and staff. When people feel connected, we can all grow together as human beings. I support free-public education and deeply believe in the education provided at Mountain Sage Community School. If elected to the Board of Directors, I will uphold the school's mission and vision while doing my best to showcase this outstanding school to the Northern Colorado Community.

What do you think is special about Mountain Sage?

To nourish the hearts and voices of the students and to work to enable each child to honor and engage consciously in the unfolding of their own unique story is a special, beautiful, and vital mission, well worthy of support. To do this work in such a warm and committed community is all the more special and too rare.

Do you have children at the school?

No.

Why are you interested in serving on the Board?

It would be a delight to connect with the community of Mountain Sage, a privilege to serve in support of the values and mission of the school, and in doing so to serve the Fort Collins Community.
