Why I Choose to Work at Nova

I chose Nova because I wanted to be in a place that highly valued building strong thinkers and moral character. I love working in a place that so highly values knowledge and is so wonderfully supported by student families and community.


I love to travel. I have lived in three different countries outside the United States. I also really enjoy singing, cooking, hiking, and spending time with family and friends.

Favorite Author/Thinker/Historical Figure

My favorite historical figure is Martin Luther King Jr.  I never fail to be inspired by how he fought tirelessly for what he believed and did so virtuously.

“Rarely do we find men who willingly engage in hard, solid thinking. There is an almost universal quest for easy answers and half-baked solutions. Nothing pains some people more than having to think.” MLK Jr.

Personal Motto/Favorite Quote

“Be the Change you wish to see in the World.” Mahatma Gandhi
