What was it about Walker’s that made you want to work here?

The fact that Walker’s is an all-girls school, as well as a school that hosts under-served brown and black girls from the surrounding, under-served communities.

What is the most rewarding part about working at Walker’s?

I am currently settling in to my role here at Walker’s and so far, I have found the staff and faculty to be extremely warm and inviting, as well as helpful, which I appreciate very much.

What is your favorite place on campus?

So far, I would say my favorite place on campus would be the lobby of the main building. It’s beautiful!

What was your favorite subject when you were in middle or high school? Why?

My favorite subject was always some form of English. I have always had a love for reading and writing. Bonus: Mathematics has always been my least favorite subject!

What is your favorite thing to do in your free time?

Write (I am working on my second manuscript), spending time with my two grandsons, and listening to great music.
