Welcome to Emma Willard School
Welcome to Emma!
I have spent the past eleven years dedicated to the education of girls. My own experience of growing up in female environments—in an all-girls high school and as a classical ballet student and teacher—was essential in allowing me to find my voice. All-girls environments provided the support and challenge I needed to define who I am.
I am enthusiastic about leading Emma Willard School as a school where we foster a culture that believes that the best is yet to come and in our school we seek not to replicate our world but to improve it. I hope you will join me at the school on bringing this mission to life.
