Re-elect Nadia Combs

Nadia Combs has successfully served in her position on the Hillsborough County School Board since she was elected in 2020. Mrs. Combs was instrumental in navigating the 7th largest school district through a pandemic and budget crisis. Under her leadership as the Board Chair, the district implemented smart and common sense budget alignments that put the school system on a stable financial footing for the future.

Mrs. Combs has always had a passion for providing children with the education they deserve. She began her impressive teaching career working at the Japanese Ministry of Education. She then excelled in Hillsborough County Public Schools, winning Teacher of the Year at Franklin Middle School, as well as Middle School Social Studies Teacher of the Year for the entire county.

Mrs. Combs knows the complex school district so well because she wore many hats prior to becoming a school board member. She was a teacher, team leader, department head, district teacher trainer, and even taught at-risk students through the Drop Out Prevention Program.

Ms. Combs is also an entrepreneur who founded a company to serve the national Supplemental Education Services program. Her company provided tutoring services to thousands of students in Title I Schools in Hillsborough County and throughout Florida. She currently owns and operates Brighton Learning Consulting, which she founded in 2014.

Mrs. Combs is a proud graduate of the University of South Florida where she earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Studies Education and a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership.

She has also served as a member of the Children’s Cancer Center Panera’s Knead for Knowledge Scholarship Committee from 2012 to the present. She is currently serving on the board of the Glazer Children’s Museum and is Co-Chair for its Education Board. Recently she became a member of the USF College of Education Dean’s Advisory Board.

Mrs. Combs has lived in Hillsborough County for 32 years and is married with two children, two dogs and two cats. She is excited to continue serving on the school board and building a stronger educational foundation for our entire community.
