Physical Education & Preschool Movement Specialist
Preschool Twos Teacher

I received my Doctoral degree in Leadership Education from Spalding University in May 2000. I hold a Master in Education from the University of Buffalo and a Bachelor of Arts from Nazareth College in Rochester, New York. I previously worked as an educator for Hospice Buffalo before moving to Louisville to work in the Advancement Office at Saint Xavier High School. After the birth of her son Jacob, I chose to become a full-time parent but still taught piano lessons in my home and coached the girls' tennis team for a local Independent School. I began working at Virginia Chance School in 2005 as the Director of Communications and remained in that position until 2013 when she became the Physical Education Specialist.

My passion for sports, health and wellness, and working with children started from a young age. I love all sports but if asked to choose, tennis would be my favorite. I played tennis during my time as an undergraduate and was a teaching professional at a club in New York for many years. I don't consider my job at VCS as work but as an opportunity to share my passion for being healthy and active.

I was first a parent at Virginia Chance School before becoming a staff member. My son Jacob started in the Five-Day Three’s and graduated from the program in 2012. It was the school’s hands-on approach to learning that drew me and my family to VCS. I wanted a program that would challenge my son academically but also foster his emotional, social and moral growth. I believe that our program helped my son become a problem solver who is willing to take risks and also has compassion for others around him.

When I'm not at school, I love to stay active. Playing tennis, backyard football and basketball, biking, hiking, and gardening are fun pastimes for me. I also sit on the board of Falls City Soccer Club and am the Parent Administrator for a local Independent School's boy’s high school soccer program.
