What drew me to Lawrence: Lawrence School’s mission-driven approach to education, along with their stalwart faculty and staff initiated my interest but ultimately it was the students I met, while touring the school, who motivated me to join the team. They provided the evidence that Lawrence School is exemplary. There is an undeniable positive energy and warmth in this school. Each day I am surrounded by “my people”; those who value individual students and understand that there are different learning profiles. I am proud to be a member of such a caring, dedicated community.

Why I chose my profession: Early in my career, I had the pleasure of teaching a child whose reputation as a challenging student preceded him. I soon discerned, however, that it was not the child who was the problem but rather his learning environment. With appropriate educational assistance, he altered his trajectory and inspired me to change mine. Advocacy is my life’s passion: Every child deserves the chance to be seen, heard, and supported throughout their academic career and into their adult lives.

Something others don’t know about me: I once sang with "Elvis" (Jesse from Indiana) in Las Vegas. We sang Viva Las Vegas, of course.

Spotted off-campus: You will find me at my local farmer’s market with my dog, Mose, or digging in my garden.

Our community is full of people just like you—parents who hold unwavering belief in their child's bright future.
