I grew up in New York and received my Masters from NYU. I moved to Atlanta a
long time ago with the idea of staying a few years and then moving back, but
I fell in love with southern ambience and have never left.
I am married and have three children. Two are married and the youngest one
just moved into the Brown district.
I have been at Brown for 20 years; the most longevity of any staff member and
love my job and the children here!
