Head of School
I was born and raised in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania where I began my career at Winchester Thurston School teaching kindergarten and first grade, then becoming the Lower School Director. After 23 years at WT in Pittsburgh, my husband and I moved to Boston where I was the Lower School Director at Buckingham Browne & Nichols School in Cambridge, MA for nine years. Currently, I am in my seventh year as Head of Powhatan School. During my career, I have been a Teacher’s Assistant, Teacher, Varsity Tennis Coach, English Department Head, Lower School Director and Head of School.
