What’s your role in the admissions office?
I am often the first point of contact for students and families. I also make sure that applications are completed, do research and projects, and help to plan events.
What made you want to work at FSHA?
There’s a longer story for another day that involves my dog, but the short answer is that I wanted to work here because of the interesting work I do and the wonderful people that I work with.
What most excites you about your work here on the Hill?
Every year we get to shepherd a new group of girls through this wildly interesting process. It’s exciting to see so many different girls who all want to attend FSHA for their own reasons.
What are the two most important things prospective students should know about FSHA?
You will probably fall in love with this location, which is great because I did too! People here are truly kind – the students, teachers, administrators, staff, everyone.
What is FSHA’s best kept secret?
To me, the boarding program! Growing up in the area, I never heard that FSHA had a boarding program for US and international students. It’s such a unique and beneficial experience for everyone here.
What’s your favorite spot on campus?
The Arts Center. It’s just stunning.
What do you love about the all-girls school environment at FSHA?
It allows these girls to be confident in their abilities and become self-assured. They are encouraged to find their place in the world and, once found, fully inhabit that place.
What are you surprisingly good at?
Genealogical research. I love devoting myself to tracing my ancestry, adding to my family tree, and compiling stories before they are lost in time.
Where can we find you when you’re not working?
At home with my dog Maggie, catching up on TV shows. Other good bets of where to find me: discount shopping, taking walks in the park, reading, or out to dinner with my friends.
Who has made the biggest impact on your life?
My family. Without them I am nothing.
