Our family has called BSH “home” for 12 years now. The children all began their school adventures right here in pre-school, and are currently in the 10th, 8th, 6th, and 4th grade classes. I am thrilled to be working at BSH this year to build up our Development and Alumni Departments.

I grew up in Connecticut and moved down south to attend JMU – Go Dukes! – where I met my husband, Scott. After college, we moved to Richmond, got married, had our first child, and then later moved out to Goochland, where we have been for fourteen years. What started as a new house with one kid and a couple of dogs, quickly grew to a very full house and a small farm in the backyard.

I have been actively volunteering at school since the kids were little. I started as a Room Mom, moved on to uKnighted, where I eventually served as President for a number of years, and gained many partners-in-crime along the way. Fundraising events like winter auctions and Beef & Music began calling my name during that time, and I have been working on them ever since. My youngest, before he was old enough to start school, would come to a complete stop at the threshold of Alumni House, because he knew if he went in there with mommy, it would be hours before we came out!
