What is your favorite thing about working at Friends Academy? The community and the mission. I specifically love working with children who have neurodiverse backgrounds.

What do you love to do outside of school? Photography, going to musicals and the opera, reading fantasy and science fiction for all ages. I love traveling to remote places, and have been to somewhere between 40-50 countries.

Fun Fact: In my past life, I got a Webby Award as the National Geographic home page producer. My past work at Nat Geo and the History Channel made me adamant about students finding “at least three reputable sources” when researching or even just stating random facts. It also helped me create opportunities for students to become producers of content, rather than just consumers.
