WHAT DO YOU DO?

I’m the Director of Learning and Development, which is a new position at Longwood Gardens.  I’m responsible for leading the overall vision and implementing the Longwood Gardens learning and development program in alignment with our strategic goals. 

WHAT DO YOU LIKE BEST ABOUT WHAT YOU DO?

Longwood Gardens is one of the world’s great gardens and our story is one of legacy, innovation, and stewardship.  It’s exciting to be part of such a beautiful and inspiring place.

HOW DID YOU GET INVOLVED IN THE LEARNING AND DEVELOPMENT FIELD?

I started working in the field of L&D upon my return from a two-year international experience in Japan (over 20 years ago)!  I’ve always believed in a person’s ability to be better than they were yesterday through the process of learning new things and developing new skills to continually grow and flourish in your career and in your life.

WHAT IS THE LAST/MOST MEANINGFUL BOOK YOU READ?

The Big Leap by Gay Hendricks – it’s all about finding your genius and working at that level

WHAT DO YOU ENJOY MOST DOING IN YOUR "OFF WORK" TIME?

Spending time outdoors with my husband Jack and two teenage girls, Sydney and Samantha…skiing, hiking, boating, biking…we’re there!
