1. Describe your interest in education.
Growing up, school was always my happy place. I am a first-generation college student and graduating from Wellesley College was one of the proudest moments in my life. I know I would not have been able to accomplish that goal without the support of the amazing educators in my life.
2. Describe your experience with independent schools.
Before coming to Carney Sandoe, I was the Admission Operations Coordinator at The Carroll School in Lincoln, MA. Some of my family members are dyslexic and the mission of Carroll really resonated with me. Prior to that, I was an associate teacher at a charter school in Boston, so I’ve had a couple of different hats in two really unique communities.
3. In one sentence, describe your role at Carney Sandoe.
While I am still learning all the ropes, my role assists the Search and Placement Groups, as well as the Recruitment Team, at Carney Sandoe with their work and I am really looking forward to interacting with schools, teachers, and team members in this position and having a hand in helping everyone.
4. Give two fun facts about you.
I love to cross stitch. My current work in progress is Dance by Henri Matisse but with cats.
I cannot live without coffee. And my birthday is National Coffee Day, so I think it’s meant to be!
5. Outside of work, what are you usually doing?
Hanging out with my husband or on Facetime with one of my sisters. I also love taking deep dives into random, interesting topics in books, podcasts, or documentaries.
6. What were your 15 minutes of fame?
Stephenie Meyer once said my name was pretty at a book signing. This was at THE HEIGHT of Twilight-mania for me and all my middle school friends, so we counted it as a brush with fame!
7. Where did you grow up?
I grew up in Pennsylvania, about an hour north of Philadelphia. My parents are originally from Southern California and in her first winter on the East Coast my mom tried to keep us home from school. She could not believe people left their houses when there was snow on the ground.
8. What are you looking forward to in your work at Carney Sandoe?
I am looking forward to learning more about the many different independent schools Carney Sandoe works with, getting to know and understand their communities, and meeting passionate educators across the world!
