I am excited to begin my second year as Head of School at Friends. I have worked in education for over twenty years, serving as a classroom teacher in second through eighth grades and math coordinator before moving into school leadership. During my years as school leader, I served as Lower School Director, Assistant Head, and Interim Head in New York City and New Jersey. I am deeply passionate about curriculum design and implementation, and I couple this with a deep understanding of child development and educational approaches. As a school leader, I work with faculty, staff, parents and students as we shape a generation of skilled, passionate, thoughtful and empathetic leaders of our future.
In addition to my work in schools, I am a faculty member for NAIS’s School Leadership Institute. I have also served as a mentor for aspiring school leaders through NYSAIS and recently presented at a national conference on the topic of faculty evaluation for improving teaching.
I earned a BA in “Aims in Education” from Hobart at William Smith Colleges where I also completed the education program in both regular and special education. In addition, I hold an MS from Bank Street College of Education and an M.Ed. in Private School Leadership from Columbia University.
Outside of school, I enjoy riding horses, biking and hiking with my family.
