2. What are your hobbies?
As you might guess from above, I love to travel and would like to do it more often. I also like to be active and be outdoors, though of course, I don’t do it enough. Other things I enjoy include: spending time with my daughter, reading, playing volleyball, and watching home renovation shows. Oh, I also love to trying new foods.

3. What is the last book that you read?
The last book I read was “Son” by Lois Lowry. It is one of the companion books to “The Giver,” which is my favorite book ever since reading it in 6th grade.

4. When students come to your office, what is one thing they will see?
Students will see a quirky lamp with a small statue of an artist wearing a beret. It speaks to my interest in all things French. J

5. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
If I could live anywhere in the world, I would live in Canada, probably in a big city like Vancouver, Montreal, or Toronto. I like the fact that it’s like the U.S. but has European influences. I’ve loved it when I visited. Canada also has free health care, same-sex marriage is legal throughout the country, education costs a lot less, French is a second language, and the list goes on. J

6. What is one suggestion you can give students to be successful here at Henry?
Ask questions. If you don’t know what kinds of questions to ask, see your counselor/teacher/staff for help. We are all here for you.

7. What is one suggestion you can give parents at Henry?
Our goal is not to have ALL children go to college but rather, to ensure they all have a plan after high school. It’s about finding the right fit for your child, not the trying to follow the expectations of others.
