I grew up on Long Island, New York, where I attended public school and longed to be part of “something bigger.” I was supported by my teachers, friends and family to think critically about the world and to ask many questions. I spent high school and college writing articles, editing student newspapers and delving deeply into classes and discussions. I’ve always been interested in people’s stories: who we are and how our experiences mold us. After a few years of working in documentary television production in New York City, I moved to Boston with my husband and young daughter, Ivy. I’ve been working in the admissions department at Beaver since 2008. I love meeting prospective students and their families, hearing their unique stories and talking with them about the Beaver community.
In the summers when the Beaver campus transforms into a day camp wonderland, I have been lucky enough to work as an adventure challenge specialist on the high ropes course and in the rock climbing program. I love getting out of the office and sharing with the campers what I’ve learned from my days as a college basketball player and from my love of outdoor sports (rock climbing, paragliding, flying trapeze, ocean kayaking.) This is a great example of how the Beaver community values balance in the lives of both students and staff and views each one of us holistically. I feel very lucky to be part of such a great community.
