About Me

Hello ADS community!
 
Austin Discovery School has been a part of my life since 2007 when I starting subbing as an AfterCare Group Leader. This community was so inspiring that I quit my job managing a restaurant and bar to work at ADS daily. A few years later, I started working with Deborah and Lydie in the Front Office. It was in this role that I received my first taste of Operations at the school.
 
Austin Discovery School gave me the support and flexibility I needed to finish my BA in History and Anthropology from Texas State University. I briefly stepped away from ADS to pursue a Master's Degree, but it did not carry the same meaning that I experienced working in this amazing environment for nearly a decade. When the Operations Department Head position opened up, I didn't hesitate for a moment to return to this community.
 
We have come so far since those first years. Although there are challenges associated with our new campus, it is an amazing opportunity to continue to grow ADS as a unique educational institution serving the diverse Austin-area communities. 
 
Please don't hesitate to contact me with any thoughts, ideas, or concerns you have about our school.
 
See you around campus!
