What wows you about Emerson?
The energy of our school is fantastic! Walking the halls is always an amazing experience to see all the collaboration going on, the thirst for learning and the overall positive vibes of students faculty and administration. What a great place and how lucky our children are to be here!!
Why do you serve on the Board of Trustees?
I serve on the Board to hopefully contribute some ideas from my experiences as both an educator and student in a variety of contexts and cultures in our global society. I believe that it is important that our children get a good grounding in both fundamentals and a “global” view of the world….
What would surprise people about you?
Not sure…..but perhaps that while I have always had a career in law in mind, I also wanted to write the great American novel….ala F. Scott Fitzgerald. I’m still working that one!!
If you could have one super power, what would it be and why?
I would have the super power to need no sleep so I could continue on with whatever I was doing at the time of normal shut off!! Imagine all the things we could do if we could just keep doing them!!
What do you do when you’re not working or at a BOT meeting?
Up north sailing and watching sunsets and traveling the world!
Who/what inspires you?
I am inspired by our children who amaze me with their sophistication at an early age, by those who face challenges and never give up, and those who wear a smile on their face!
What did/do you want to be when you grew up?
FBI agent or Marine Biologist
What is your favorite ice cream flavor?
Peppermint stick, it’s the best!
Anything else you would like Emerson families to know about you?
