After graduating from college, where I majored in history and played soccer, I spent several years in San Francisco. Though I considered following my father’s footsteps into law, I quickly realized I was more suited to teaching and coaching, and I began taking education classes at the University of San Francisco while working and coaching at the Jewish Community Center of San Francisco. After getting my master’s in Secondary Education, I moved back to Boston and began working at Beaver in 2004.

In my time at Beaver,  I spent 6 years as the Dean of Faculty, and have taught a wide variety of US history courses for the past 12 years. I have coached in many different programs at Beaver, and advised the Mock Trial club and Model UN club.

Most recently I transitioned into the Athletic department. In my past I have spent time as a head boys varsity basketball coach, head college basketball coach and currently serve as the girls varsity soccer head coach.  

I have worn many hats while here at Beaver, but no matter my role, I love the freedom students and teachers have in the classroom, the emphasis on technology and real world learning, and the way we prepare kids for the world outside of Beaver.
