As Director of Admission and Marketing, my mission is to continue to build a warm, nurturing and compassionate community for Elgin Academy. Throughout my career working at independent schools, I have been tasked with finding the right students for that particular school. I hope to continue this legacy at EA and ensure every student has the opportunity to witness EA being the right fit for them. There is no perfect fit when you're looking for the next big thing to do. You have to take opportunities and make an opportunity fit for you, rather than the other way around. The ability to learn is the most important quality a leader can have.

Since I came to Elgin Academy as a parent, I saw that Elgin Academy is a place for students to learn who they really are. They are encouraged to be risk takers, to take chances and to go outside of their comfort zone.As a result, graduates of EA are prepared to take on the world and do amazing things

When the opportunity arose to join the Marketing and Admissions staff, I was thrilled to be able to play a more active role in helping to bring more students to campus and let others in the community know about Elgin Academy.Elgin Academy is a unique community of students, teachers, staff and family who come together to create an atmosphere of learning, caring and creativity and I love that it’s my job to tell everyone about it.
