Favorite book as a child?

As a child my favorite book was The Very Hungry Caterpillar. I couldn’t understand how the caterpillar was still hungry after everything that he eats throughout the story!

Favorite book as an adult?

As an adult, I really enjoy reading series of books.I enjoyed the Hunger Games series and am looking forward to seeing if the remaining movies do the books justice.

What are some of your hobbies?

I love to travel and do so as much as I can. I also enjoy playing with my dogs, baking, photography, skiing, playing tennis, going to the driving range, and, most importantly, spending time with my family.

Why did you chose to work at Sewickley Academy?

Having attended an independent school, I was familiar with the atmosphere and after visiting campus I knew that Sewickley Academy was the place I wanted to be. I’m happy to be part of such a welcoming community and to work with such great people!

I’m most looking forward to getting to know the community and seeing new faces on campus.
