Born, raised, and educated in Hayward, my parents, neighbors, and teachers instilled in me how important it was to volunteer and make neighborhoods the best place possible for kids and families. It's a lesson and responsibility I have taken very seriously my whole life. As a lifelong Hayward educator, I believe it's all of our responsibility to serve neighborhoods so that all families can live safe and healthy so we can thrive.
After we graduated from college, Lety and I married and we made Hayward our home. We are both educators with a strong commitment to serving Hayward. Today, my community engagement is only an extension of what my teachers taught me early in my life: Leadership through Service.
