Walker’s has a reputation of being a place where people don’t just talk the talk, they walk the walk. Their community not only strives to be inclusive and equitable, but it takes actionable steps to meet those goals. I’m also the mother of two girls, and I am excited to be a part of girls+ education.
I love the Adirondack chairs overlooking Talcott Mountain where you can see the Heublein tower. It is spectacular in the fall! I will never get tired of that view!
I love to play board games and go exploring in nature with my kids. I also volunteer at my church and serve as a Girl Scout leader.
