Bixby School since 2016

After many years in education research and educational leadership consulting, I am delighted to have found a home at Bixby as part of the administrative team. Before coming to Bixby, I have taught German as a foreign language, mathematics, and teacher workshops from early childhood to college-age students. At Bixby, the two worlds of theory and practice wonderfully complement each other into a program that allows me to see its positive impact and potency daily in my own younger son’s school experience here at Bixby and in my conversations with our students, families, and alumni. I tremendously enjoy exploring our community with families as part of the admissions process. I am delighted to work alongside amazing teachers and to experience the richness an intentionally small community like Bixby has to offer. When I am not at Bixby, I enjoy traveling, writing, swimming and hiking with my family and friends.
