What’s the best part about working at Allendale Columbia?
AC is special because of our community! I love working with kids from when they are little 3-year-olds all the way through their Lower School careers. Then I’m lucky enough to see them mature and develop into amazing young adults as they continue through Middle and Upper School. I can’t imagine working anywhere else! These relationships are very special.

If you could do any job in the world besides what you do now, what would it be?
If I wasn’t teaching, I’m not sure what I would do!

What’s your favorite hobby?
I am passionate about travel! I don’t get to do it as often as I used to, but I love exploring different places and cultures. I also love to read! My current favorite genre is historical fiction.
