A BRIGHTER FUTURE

Putting Students First

WHAT I BELIEVE

KEY POSITIONS

I believe school curriculum should be based on teaching truth through integrity, freedom, honesty, and a sense of belonging.  Restricting or omitting important aspects of history, literature, civics, and equality negatively impacts the value of education and students' rights to equal access and education excellence.
  • Prepare our kids for life, college and career

ABOUT ME

Putting My Experience
to Work

As a California native and 20+ year Truckee resident, Denyelle is passionate about our mountain region and ensuring future generations can live, work and thrive here. This means finding new solutions and collaborating with community partners to inspire our youth to create our best future. We are better together and our greatest investment in our future is with our kids. Supporting opportunities that inspire youth to learn and grow in a safe public school setting should be an on-going community priority and Denyelle is well-positioned to deliver on this goal. Her passion for education and learning drives her to be your Tahoe Truckee school board candidate.


In addition to her full time work, Denyelle and her husband Rob own and operate two outdoor recreation businesses, one in Truckee and one in Placer County, supporting 25 employees. They have two kids, one at Donner Trail Elementary and one at Alder Creek Middle School,  and love to share their passion for learning with others.


Denyelle’s mission is to prioritize student well-being through transparent and collaborative actions and to support the hard-working teachers, administrators and staff that make the Tahoe Truckee school district award winning.

Denyelle holds an undergraduate degree in biology from the University of California Santa Barbara and a Master’s Degree in City and Regional Planning from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo.

     

She has dedicated her professional career to building all facets of community through the interconnectedness between people  and the natural and built environment. In her current role, Denyelle is the Community Development Director for the Town of Truckee overseeing a staff of 20. Her public service leadership has been fundamental to policy making decisions on key community-building topics such as affordable and workforce housing, sustainability, business development, equity, growth management and more.

 

Her problem-solving, policy development and leadership skills align with the skills necessary to be a collaborative TTUSD school board member. With an aptitude for creativity and finding win-win opportunities, Denyelle is ready to support actions that are in the best interest of Truckee’s kids and their support network of amazing teachers, administrators and school staff.
