Hello and welcome to BWS! As chief welcome officer, my role is to help families find, fall in love with and oftentimes relocate to this lovely, established Waldorf school for toddlers through teenagers in the Berkshires of western Massachusetts, the unceded homeland of the Mohican Nation. I received my MA in writing from New York University, where I was a fellow under poet Galway Kinnell, and my BA in writing from Agnes Scott College in Atlanta. You'll find me supporting the school's mission through communications, advertising, web copy, social media, events and outreach that hopefully anticipate and answer caregivers' questions. Originally from Oklahoma, I co-founded the BWS DEI (Diversity, Equity and Inclusion) Committee with parent Anna White in 2016. As an enrolled member and international ambassador of the Chickasaw Nation, I am passionate about building bridges of understanding and empathy to create welcome and belonging for all families.
