Vassar College
My personal BHAG (big hairy audacious goal)

To buy some land with my husband and start a small hospitality company with tiny houses to stay in and good food to eat.

What energizes me the most

Art in all its forms! Seeing plays, going to a gallery, discovering a new poet or going to a symphony I am not familiar with, all get me so excited.

If I were a superhero, I’d be…

Captain Underpants.

My favorite getaway spot

Kathmandu, Nepal.

The most valuable piece of advice I’ve ever received

“Don’t forget to have fun out there.” I think it is easy to get stressed or frustrated, in life and at work, and take things too seriously, when usually there is a way to make even the most mundane tasks fun.

Favorite part of working at Eagle Hill

I love that it’s my job to be constantly learning.
