Bachelor of Arts in Political Science/History at the University of Oklahoma
I grew up in Texas and attended a school very similar to Dublin School! After college, I moved to Boston to work for The Christian Science Monitor, an international daily newspaper. It was a fascinating place to work, and I developed my love of photography while I was there. I took a year off and studied photography at the Maine Media Workshops in Rockport, Maine which was life-changing. I returned from Maine to help develop the Mary Baker Eddy Library in Boston.
My husband started working for Yankee Magazine, and that is what brought us to New Hampshire, our favorite place! I live in Hancock with my husband, daughter, son, an overly enthusiastic mini Australian shepherd, and two underly enthusiastic cats. I am also the communications director for Camps Newfound and Owatonna in Maine. I'm excited to be working in the communications department at Dublin School. It is a gift to be in an atmosphere where ideas are the primary currency, and curiosity and kindness are celebrated.
How would your friends describe you in three words? My friends would describe me as supportive, positive, and enthusiastic.
What is your favorite course you have taken in high school or college? My favorite course in high school was AP United States history. History is my first love. And I had the good fortune of having an incredible high school history teacher, Dr. William "Doc" Shelton. He had a Masters in Divinity as well as a Ph.D. in History, and he brought a thoughtful and engaging perspective to our classroom and discussions.
I am most happy when... I am behind a camera!
If I had a free afternoon I would... If I had a free afternoon I would take my book and my camera and walk to Juggernaut pond in Hancock, climb the rocks overlooking the pond, and settle in for an afternoon of reading and photography.
What is your favorite outdoor activity? My favorite outdoor activity is trail running. There are stellar trails near my home in Hancock and nothing makes me happier than running them with my dog, Ruby.
