I am running for CTPF Teacher Trustee because I want to work for CTPF members to ensure that our pension is fiscally healthy. Our pensions are a promise, not only to our veteran members; but to the new teachers, just beginning their careers. Currently CTPF is funded at 47 percent; which is significantly underfunded.  I pledge to work with the CTPF board to grow our retirement wealth.

Member Status

I currently work as a school psychologist and I have been a teacher member of the Chicago Teachers’ Pension Fund (CTPF) since 1998.
