What was it about The Ethel Walker School that made you want to work here? I was drawn to The Ethel Walker School for the opportunity to wear multiple hats--a college counselor, advisor, coach, dorm parent. The sense of community at Ethel Walker coupled with the driven, kind, and spirited students is something that makes this place so special. The Ethel Walker School living and learning culture was appealing to me. What was your favorite subject when you were in middle or high school? My favorite subject in high school was language class, particularly Spanish. I was and still am fascinated with the complexities involved in learning a new language and culture. Spanish class challenged me to step outside my comfort zone as a classroom participant, and it fostered a passion I never knew I had. What is your favorite thing to do in your free time? In my free time, I love to exercise! As a former college athlete, I made exercising a priority in order to clear my head and participate in something I love, whether that be group fitness classes, field hockey pick-up games, yoga, running, cycling, or walking my dog, Halo. I think it is important to incorporate a bit of free time in a day to move around a little and get a quick sweat in.
