Senior associate director of admission and dorm head of Casa.
Favorite job perks
Fresh oranges and avocados, outdoor showers in January, the amazing Dining Hall staff and Maintenance Department, role models for my children, the view.
I knew I wanted to work at Thacher when
I visited for the first time. I felt so at home.
Since you asked me to brag, here's the professional accomplishment I'm most proud of
When my senior advisees told me that I “...empower girls to be the strong and independent girls that they truly are.”
When not in the Admission Office I can be found
Shuttling my kids around, out on a morning run, or watching sports (my kids’ games, Thacher events, the Sox/Pats/Celtics).
Favorite place at Thacher
The couch on our back patio and the pool with my kids on late summer afternoons.
Favorite place on earth
Queenstown, New Zealand; Vancouver, British Columbia; Flathead Lake, Montana; Ojai.
Favorite place in my imagination
Singing Thunder Road with Bruce Springsteen.
The book, movie, work of art, or piece of music I cannot imagine life without
My playlists; our family sabbatical photo project; A Prayer for Owen Meany (John Irving).
Hardly anybody knows that I
Lived in Georgia for five years growing up and had a thick southern accent. All it takes is about five minutes of conversation with someone from the south or an episode of Friday Night Lights and I’m throwing “y’all” around like I never left.
What I wanted to be when I grew up (when I was 10)
What I want to be when I grow up (now)
As thoughtful, giving, energetic, and beloved by her children as my mom.
