North Shore Country Day School
United States


I joined the business office of North Shore Country Day in 2000, then was promoted to Director of Finance in 2010. Not an educator by trade, I work diligently to understand what it takes and what it means to be an excellent educator by engaging colleagues to facilitate new and exciting educational undertakings on a regular basis. I also work closely with my colleagues in development, admissions and communications to streamline processes and work together in a way that epitomizes the School’s "live and serve" motto. Prior to my current role, I worked in public accounting serving a variety of nonprofit clients. In addition to my role at school, I actively serves on ISACS accreditation teams as it satisfies a curiosity to learn and engage with professionals from other educational institutions. Lastly, I try to help out in divisions to be able to interact with the students including covering consultancies and coaching Science Olympiad.
