Best VCS Moment

If I had to pick one, dragon boating on Lake Champlain on a gorgeous late summer day with the awesome 6th graders is tough to beat.

Interests and Hobbies

All sports, but tennis and basketball are my favorites, photography, swimming, exploring the outdoors, movies (all kinds but horror), and spending time with family.

Brief Biography

I was born and raised in Vermont, attended Bowdoin College in Maine, and then proceeded to live in various parts of the country (Sun Valley, ID Boston, and Washington, DC). I spent a number of years working as an environmental consultant, but as much as I enjoyed the work I knew it wasn’t the right career for me. After moving to DC, I was hired to coach tennis and basketball at St. Andrew’s Episcopal School. Coaching soon turned into teaching and I realized right away that I had found what I was meant to do. It is an amazing thing to have a role in shaping the growth of a young person, to work with passionate and dedicated colleagues, and to be in an environment where I can continue my own learning journey. It’s been ten years since I first stepped in front of a class and I still love to come to work every day. And now I get to be a part of the incredible VCS community in the State that has always been my home. Life is good.
