What is your favorite Walker’s tradition?

My favorite Walker’s tradition would be Holiday Vespers. The Chapel is beautifully decorated, students share their holiday traditions and we end with an all school sing-a-long. It is the perfect way to spend an evening before we depart for Winter Break.

If you were to give advice to an incoming Walker’s student, what would it be?

Be open to all of the opportunities & activities on (and off) campus. DOS, the EWSPA, and other schools come up with so many fun activities during the year. Participate! Attending an Independent school is not just about Academics – it is also about creating memorable moments with your friends!

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

In my free time I love to read, workout, take walks with my family, play with my kids, go on date nights with my husband, hang out with my sisters, go out with friends, cook and bake.
