Favorite thing about St. Anne's: The St Anne's community is like a second family. I have been welcomed into this amazing group by students, faculty, and parents as though I have know them forever. I believe that St Anne's is setting students up for great success in their lives. We truly are raising good humans and not just teaching students.
Why did you choose education? In my position, I have the unique opportunity to not only feed a community on a daily basis but also to impart knowledge about food, sustainability, and our impact on the environment because of our food and behaviorial choices. I get to teach students good eating habits that will hopefully stay with them into adulthood. And watching kids get excited about cooking and food and the dining events that we create makes me smile.
Hobbies or interests outside of school: Cooking, baking, reading, dining out, watching movies, hiking, and spending time with my family. I am also very interested in learning about food products and services...how they were developed and marketed to mainstream America.
