As Middle and Upper School Admission Director and Director of Financial Aid, what do you do for Packer?
I recruit, interview and enroll prospective families for grades 5-12 and review applications and make financial aid awards (with the help of a committee) for grades K-12.
Tell us about a specific time you found your job especially rewarding.
I am especially lucky in my job that I feel rewarded all of the time! I love when I take a chance on a student and then see them flourish here. I take great pride when the kids that we accept into this community make a major impact, whether it is presenting their findings from years of research in the Science Research Program or choreographing a piece in the Dance Concert.
What’s one thing you love about your colleagues?
We have a lot of fun together! I knew from the minute I interviewed here years ago that this is a “work hard, play hard” kind of place...students and adults. Everyone is kind and willing to help each other out!
What is your favorite space on campus and why?
I am in the Admissions Office most of the time, which is beautiful. However, when I do get out, I really love the art studio — so colorful and vibrant. I love how messy it can get and how the natural light comes through.
I also love the busyness of the Student Center. I know, I know… it’s packed, but I love the vibe of the kids laughing and interacting in that space.
