After spending several years in college admissions and recruitment, I am thrilled to be part of the GCE community. I’m continuously impressed by GCE’s dynamic experiential learning model, multidisciplinary curriculum, and caring staff. I believe that finding the right “fit” in an educational environment is critical to ensure student success, and I look forward to introducing GCE to students and their families.
What was your favorite college class?
It was called Food and Culture. We studied representations of food in literature and really considered how important food and dining are in our culture overall. The professor was great. She challenged our assumptions, introduced us to real European-style butter (it’s so much better), and encouraged us to bring our own relationships with food and dining into our analysis of the texts.
What are your hobbies?
I like to keep my hands busy, so I crochet and cook. Beyond that, I’m an avid reader and am usually reading 2 or 3 books at once.
What do you want the future of education to be?
Education should be purposeful and relevant. Students shouldn't question why they're doing something. I hope that schooling starts to meet the needs of the students and prepares them for real world, which means not shying away from complicated topics, challenging histories, and uncertain futures, and embracing technology and 21st-century skills.
