Why White Mountain?
Growing up, I attended a small independent school in Boston where my education was influenced by a strong community relationship and experience based learning. My family also had a home in the White Mountains where I spent my winters ski racing, and my summers hiking and fishing. After deciding to pursue a career in education, I realized there was no other place I would rather lay my roots than WMS!
 
When not in the classroom I can be found: Fishing at the pond, or biking the trails with my partner Caroline and our dog, Willie. And in the winter I’ll be over at Cannon!

Favorite tradition at WMS?
Harvest Dinner

Favorite place on campus?
The school pond at dawn

Favorite White Mountain teaching moment?
Watching the first class of students I ever taught give their final “Formal Debate” in our class and seeing how much they had all grown and progressed over the year.

Favorite season?
Ski Season
 
Not many people know that: I’ve been speaking French since I was six!
