    Working in finance has always been my passion. I started my career in investment management before moving on to work at a hedge fund in Manhattan. I changed my focus to corporate finance after earning my MBA. My corporate life included leadership experience in Corporate Strategy and Treasury at a Fortune 500 company. Later as a Director of Finance, I oversaw financial planning and analysis as well.

    Candace Brawner

    Director of Student Life

    Candace Brawner

    After graduating with honors with a degree in English Literature, I began teaching in the Katy Independent School District in 2003. I held various teaching and coaching positions for six years, focusing mostly on honors coursework in high school. Then, I joined the English faculty of Lone Star College while completing my graduate degree in International Studies with an emphasis in Literature.

    While I enjoyed teaching at the university level, I missed the spirit of secondary education and joined a very large, private high school where I served for seven years as the Director of Development. I am currently completing my final weeks of coursework for my doctoral degree in Ethics and Leadership and will defend my dissertation proposal in the coming months.

    Aaron Kane

    Director of Curriculum and Assistant Head (Middle School)

    Aaron Kane

    I am happily married to Natasha, who is the Head of Student Services, and we have two  amazing children. They are a huge reason for us to leave the relative comfort of the UK and live and work abroad. Our desire to see our children grow up to be fully rounded and active global citizens has taken us to some truly amazing places and we are delighted that Katy, Texas is now our home.

    I have been fortunate to be able to work with some truly outstanding colleagues in each of the schools I have worked in, with my most recent being UWCSEA in Singapore. I am extremely grateful of the phenomenal opportunities that our children have had because of this and I am deeply committed to ensuring that all of our children continue to have the same high-quality experiences here at BISH. As a family, we are all so excited to be able to continue our remarkable journey by immersing ourselves in all that the BISH and wider Texan community have to offer.
