As the child of a teacher, I witnessed the power of education as I was growing up. I always knew that I wanted to be part of a school that supports the growth and development of young people. I am very lucky to be part of such a community at Elgin Academy and am grateful be surrounded by such joy in learning as exists here.

As Development Director, I help to enhance the learning experience for each student through fundraising. The fundraising efforts of the extraordinary team in the Development office help make it possible for our students to explore new worlds, confidently give presentations, learn their own strengths on the athletic field, and shine artistically. Development also supports the entire Elgin Academy community from our faculty to our parent volunteers. What happens at EA every day would not be possible without their efforts and the Development Office assists them in every way we can.

I am grateful to the entire Elgin Academy community which helps our students learn and thrive and happy to be a part of it all.

Being a part of the EA Community means being in a place where people genuinely care. We celebrate each other in our successes and support each other in our challenges. We come to this place not just because it is a job or it is our school, but because we truly believe in the experience that takes place on our campus.
