This will be my ninth Year at Brown International Academy! I started as a Special Ed Teacher and did that full time for three years. For the past five years I have been a Senior Team Lead half time and a Special Ed or Interventionist Teacher the other half. I love both parts of the position: teaching and connecting with students as well as supporting teachers in a coaching role to leverage instructional or behavior recommendations to set up their students to thrive. Having IB at the heart of our day makes Brown an exceptional place for both students and staff.

I love spending time with my husband and our four grown children. Family time is precious. Otherwise, I like to hike, walk in nature, read, do yoga and I am addicted to trying out new recipes. What I love most though is to travel!
