What was it about The Ethel Walker School that made you want to work here?

The strong and lively community. Everyone here always has the best energy and that is something I want to be a part of daily.

Who is your biggest female role model?

Frida Kahlo because she was unapologetic, artistic, lively, and courageous.

What were your favorite subjects when you were in middle or high school?

Art and English because of the teachers that taught those courses. They both pushed their students just enough that they became independent thinkers themselves and strong individuals in the community.
