I am excited to be here at Chester Andover Elementary School! I received my Bachelor's degree in European Politics and Economics in England, my Master's degree in Elementary Education in Spain, and my CAGS in Educational Leadership here in Vermont. I have taught many grade levels and began my teaching career in Singapore. On a personal note, I am a veteran, and married to a girl from England. My son is a forest ranger in Maine and my daughter is a journalist in Eastern Europe. I love dogs, traveling, Red Sox and Patriots, and when I am not working in school, I am a police officer in my town.
I was born in Boston and raised in Bridgewater, MA. My husband and I have been married for over 25 years and have traveled all over. We have lived in Massachusetts, Colorado and Germany. We have two children and four grandchildren. A very full life. Our family moved from Germany to Chester in 1999 and ran the Quail Hollow Inn for 7 years. This was a great adventure for us. We sold the inn in 2006 and have enjoyed our weekends ever since. My husband and I love the outdoors and try to take advantage of the wonderful New England days.
I began working at Chester-Andover in 2001. I am also a graduate of CAES and Green Mountain Union High School. For the first four years I was a secretary in the Special Education Department. I now work in the Main Office as the Administrative Assistant to the Principal as well as Testing Coordinator. I lived and worked in Boston for a group of eye surgeons for 4 years and then worked for 8 years as a legal assistant in Boston’s oldest law firm. After giving birth to twin boys my husband and I decided to return to Chester to raise our family. My sons, Chad and Elliot, attend college at UVM and Endicott College.
Aside from spending time with my family, I enjoy cooking, hiking, biking, camping, and decorating my home.
