Why I love my job: I get to work with my favorite people—adolescents and their families! I also love working with highly skilled professionals who focus on students’ social-emotional health and academic growth. Contributing to Lawrence’s culture of creativity, respect, and appreciation is a dream come true.
What drew me to Lawrence: I was very impressed with how Lawrence implemented the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program after touring the school.
Favorite part of my day: The mornings in the hallways, saying, “Hello happy people!” to the students and seeing their smiles.
Spotted off-campus: I enjoy playing with my two border collies, Ezekiel and Abigail, camping, gardening, and refinishing and upcycling furniture.
