  • I was born and grew up in Vermont. I spent a lot of time outside as a kid and always wondered why so many people asked me, "Why do you ask so many questions?" Being curious I loved school, but being dyslexic forced me to work especially hard in Math. In high school I discovered my love for endurance sports: cross-country skiing and running, and bicycle racing on and off road. I went to college in Minnesota for the good snow and good academics. After graduating, I started working in education and haven't stopped since. I love helping people of any age discover new ideas and abilities. I came to Darrow as the Director of Studies, and have loved having a wider stage from which to teach from in the role of Head of School. I finally know what I want to be when I grow up! When I have free time I cook for my family, do qigong or spend time outside exercising.
