Originally from Boston’s North Shore, I joined the British International School of Boston as the Finance Business Manager in 2016 with experience that comes from living and working overseas in Europe and Asia for many years.
With over 20 years of financial services industry experience at leading financial services corporations, my career has been specialized in international finance, taxation, human resources, and operations management with an extensive focus on strategic development for offshore start-ups and turnarounds, defining and implementing process improvement and change management in both US and international contexts.
I recently transitioned back to the US hoping to build on that strong foundation in education management. Combining my passion for education and business management, with the sheer variety of activity that this role entails and the stimulating challenges it poses, holds great appeal for me, as I strive for continuous improvement, innovation, and embracing change to meet the needs of the BISB community.
Outside of work, I’m active in my community and have served in a variety of leadership roles with the alumni associations of both Saint Michael’s College and the University of Notre Dame. I’m a member of the Junior League of Boston and active in local charity causes. Additionally, I volunteer my time for cancer research fundraising, participating in the Pan Mass Challenge for the Dana Farber Cancer Institute and the walk-a-thon for the North Shore Medical Center. Recently, I spent time volunteering in a healthcare clinic in Peru. It was certainly an eye-opener for appreciating and understanding healthcare systems. Being able to participate in triage, pre-op, and post-op care was a wonderful and insightful experience all-around, and most importantly, I enjoyed connecting with the local people. Our paths are different, but when they intersect, there is something to learn and compassion to share. My keen interests in swimming, photography, and cross-cultural experiences continue to fuel my eclectic spirit.
I have a great respect for education and am thrilled to be working for an organization leading the future for global education providing education to inspire and empower students to make the world a better place. There are so many opportunities available today, and I cannot think of a more abundant environment than the one students find themselves in at the British International School of Boston
