My name is Ami Gandhi and I’m a current Palos Verdes Peninsula Unified School District Board Member running for my seat on the board.
As a mother of two students in the district, I am personally invested in the strong education that PV schools are known for. With a 3rd and 5th grader at home, I understand first hand the challenges our students face on a daily basis.
My educational background includes a Bachelors Degree of Science in Biology from the University of Southern California with a minor in business administration. In addition, I have a Masters Degree from Loma Linda University in Public Health. With over 16 years of corporate work experience I understand and believe in the importance of fiscal responsibility.

Why I'm Running
I grew up in Southern California and became a resident of Rancho Palos Verdes 5 years ago. With each coming year my pride as a PV resident has grown exponentially as has my commitment to serving my community. We moved here primarily due to the amazing reputation of the school district and I firmly believe that a public education is the backbone of building a strong community. I have had the opportunity to work with my fellow board members as well as district staff to strengthen that amazing reputation and enable our district to shine. I am excited to continue to work to keep PVPUSD ranked #1 in the South Bay in academic achievement and to make PVPUSD the strongest school district in the nation.
