I have been a Charlotte resident since 1990, after graduating high school in San Diego, California and going on to graduate from UNC Charlotte, where I received a BFA with a major in Graphic Design. For the past 10 years, I have enjoyed working in membership sales, communications and marketing for various Charlotte companies and area public and private country clubs.
Being a parent, I truly understand that finding the right school for your children can be an emotional journey. When you find a school that feels right, you just know and it can make all the difference in your family’s lives. As I, myself, have a daughter going off to college next fall and a son who attends BISC and is about to enter into our IB Diploma Program, I can say that I have experienced this journey and all the emotions that come with it. I will be the first to say that I am still experiencing the journey and, as I have been informed by my own parents, the journey never ends - it just changes - and to enjoy every moment of it. These are the reasons why I thoroughly enjoy my role here as Director of Admissions and Marketing so much: because I get to play a key role in assisting families through this very personal and emotional journey, and I truly enjoy helping parents and students to discover what is right for their family.
I also feel very honored to have been entrusted with telling our school’s unique story, not only to families in the Charlotte area, but also to International families across the globe. Our family-sized school and our diverse family community where children are happy, learning is personal, and real-life opportunities abound is after all… a story worth telling!
I would have to say, by far my greatest and most rewarding accomplishment to date has been raising my two beautiful children Bella and Oliver with my amazing husband Michael and our two cats Hammish and Frieda. My favorite thing in the whole world is to spend time talking about their day and encouraging them to go out and contribute what makes them unique and special to the world!
I look forward to helping you and your family further explore our school as an option for your children!
