Student Life: Director of Student Belonging


I grew up in New York City and graduated with a BA in History from Columbia University. After college, I worked in the publishing industry for six years: first at Penguin Books, and then at Stanford University Press. While volunteering as a tutor at the Redwood City Library, I discovered my love for teaching. I enrolled in Stanford’s STEP program, where I earned my MA in Education and my CA teaching credential.

Since completing the STEP program in 2006, I have taught at Leadership Public School in Hayward, spent time as Academic Director for College Track in Oakland, and taught at the International School of Bergen, in Norway.

I am very excited to be a part of Menlo’s faculty. When I’m not teaching, I enjoy reading, traveling, and spending time with my husband, son, and two cat children.
