What are your roles at Eaglebrook? Special Events Coordinator, Facilities Coordinator, Travel Coordinator, and School Store Manager.
Proudest Achievement? Watching my children grow into confident, kind, and remarkable human beings. I couldn't be more proud of them both.
And work-related; after each successful event, you get a sense of pride for all that we were able to achieve with such a rockstar team. The smiles on the alumni, parents, and grandparents’ faces make all of the hard work worth it. You get a complete recharge after every event. If I've helped make that trip to campus special, I couldn't ask for more.

Movie you would recommend?Maudie directed by Aisling Walsh.
Favorite Food? Currently, hummus and carrots.
My soundtrack is? Pandora, the Lumineers station.
Best Advice Ever Received? Never let your nerves stop you from accomplishing great things or from having fun.
Why Eaglebrook? I get to drive to this beautiful campus each day with my daughter and before her with my son. I watched my son learn how to fly fish from my office window that overlooked the pond. My home is full of my daughter's artwork. They both found successes in the arts, languages, and sports that they wouldn't have had anywhere else. The entire Eaglebrook community is one big family, and that is why I chose Eaglebrook.
What are your interests/hobbies? My husband and I love home renovations. There is always a new project going on in our home. As a family, we love to do weekly hikes and get outdoors.
