Hi, I’m Jaime! I am the mother of two girls who attend Lincroft Elementary School. My husband, Richard, and I are proud to be raising the 4th generation of our families to grow up in Monmouth County.
I work in supply chain and distribution and, throughout my career, have developed many skills that will allow me to serve you well as a member of the BOE. I am proficient at strategic planning, budgeting, capital distribution and management of large scale projects (including government contracts). I also know how to communicate with diverse groups of people who may have competing interests, and successfully find common ground and create a vision that inspires innovation. Last year, I fought to keep children in school in person full time, and I continue to advocate for children to be able to attend school with as few restrictions as possible. I believe the interests of children must always come first when considering actions as a member of the BOE.
I come from a long line of public servants which include teachers, nurses, and police officers. I’ve been an active member of the Junior League of Monmouth County for over ten years, including serving as Treasurer for two years. The Junior League is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to developing women as civic leaders through volunteerism and community service. Facilitating community partnerships and overseeing fiscal policies are cornerstones I’ve laid that can support a successful education system.
I believe schools form the foundation for communities. Children bring together people of different economic backgrounds, races, religions and generations through their academic achievements, sportsmanship and performing arts. Schools are also a representation of a community. Our schools must be inclusive and equitable for children to be the best representation of our community and values that shape its future.
By putting children first, I believe I can help advance our Middletown schools to be the best possible environment for children to grow and succeed.
