I love the creative community at the school. It is unlike any other school where I have taught or that my children have attended.

I grew up in a small town outside of Rochester, NY. I attend both Nazareth College and SUNY Albany, completing a degree in English with a minor in Fine Art. Upon moving to San Francisco, I pursued a BFA in painting and illustration at California College of Art. I came to work at The San Francisco School in a perfectly orchestrated moment - through an artist connection who was connected to members of the San Francisco School community. It was a perfect fit right from the start. My own children attended Middle School here and we are all grateful for those shared years. I quietly pursue my own creative work. I am inspired by nature. I enjoy good conversations anywhere, at any time.
