I have been living outside of the US since 2008. For the past 12 years I have been a teacher and administrator in international schools in the United Arab Emirates and Costa Rica. I have been the Early Childhood Principal at Country Day School since 2014; in 2020, I have expanded this role to Primary Principal in working with our Elementary and Early Childhood community. Throughout my career I have gained knowledge and inspiration from my fellow educators. I have been fortunate to have many mentors who have shared great expertise with me and reminded me of the joys being an educator bring.
I love the mild climate of Costa Rica and the many adventures this beautiful Central American country has to offer! I enjoy reading, swimming and animals. However, my passion is learning; which I feel is best accomplished through travel. I have a thirst for learning about cultures and hearing the stories of others and travel helps to quench this!
