Something that makes Brearley different from other places you've worked: What I love that makes Brearley different from other schools is that intrinsic love of reading present in all students! It is so enjoyable to see our girls so often get lost in the world of a new book.

Coffee or tea (or neither): Vanilla lattes 
Favorite music/band: Taylor Swift
Favorite thing about working in New York: Biking to work!
Hobbies: Reading, Soul Cycle classes, and traveling to as many places as possible
Fun fact(s) about you: In Nashville, I was a group fitness instructor at my neighborhood YMCA for five years. My mother is from Jamaica and I spent the first thirteen years of my life living in Kingston with my grandparent for three months every summer. 
The Brearley School is a K-XII independent day school for girls in New York City. Empowering girls of adventurous intellect to think critically and creatively.
