In My Free Time I Like
Spending time with my friends and family. We like to go camping. We like to go out to eat or seek out the best dessert places. I recommend a Bavarian Cream stuffed donut at Two Boys Donuts.
What Motivated You to Become an Assistant?
Helping others is my goal… no matter how big or small the tasks.
What Do You Enjoy Most In Your Role?
The ability to always learn new things… Advancement is a whole new world for me.
Why Menaul School?
The community! I saw right from the jump this was going to be a place that cared for and supported their employees.
What message(s) from past mentors or teachers has had the most impact on you?
A former co-worker was so thoughtful to her employees – she opened my eyes to being more caring for others, how one small gesture could change someone’s whole day. I strive to be nice to people and listen to their stories and thoughts. I take that with me everywhere and try to apply it every single day in my personal and professional life.
What would you say to a family or student who is considering Menaul School?
I wish my younger self had the opportunity to attend a school like Menaul. It is a great fit for most students.
