Upper School Athletics

Assistant Athletic Director, Flag Football


My first day at Menlo was in September 1985, as a freshman in high school. After four memorable years and upon graduating in 1989, I attended UCLA and UC Davis, where I received my BA.

After living in Aspen, CO, I returned to Menlo as Director of Alumni Relations from 1997 to 2005, when I left to take time off to raise my two sons. In 2008, I accepted my current position as Assistant Athletic Director, a job that combines two of my passions: athletics and Menlo School. I have also enjoyed being the assistant girls’ varsity soccer coach for the last several years, a position I still currently hold.

Outside of Menlo, I spend as much time with my family as possible and keep a clear head by working out and playing soccer and softball with friends. One day, I hope traveling tops my list of hobbies!
