Audrey spent her childhood as an avid equestrian in central Pennsylvania. After graduating from Milton Academy in Milton, MA, she headed south to Roanoke College, Salem, VA to earn a Bachelor's of Art in Psychology and her elementary (K-8) teaching certification. Audrey taught middle school mathematics and science for 4 years in the Roanoke City Public Schools. She also coached middle school soccer and track. Audrey then relocated to southwest New Hampshire, where she earned a Master's Degree in Educational Leadership from Keene State College, Keene, NH. Audrey transitioned from teaching to school administration in 2012. She is currently the Principal of Cutler School, an elementary school for 280 students in grades 3-6 located in Swanzey, NH.
Audrey is a member of the Association of Supervision and Curriculum Development and New Hampshire Association of School Principals. She promotes the Jesse Lewis Choose Love Movement and their social and emotional learning curriculum in our local schools. She also volunteers with the Girls Scout of America. Outside of her professional career, you are likely to find Audrey riding her OTTB, Lexus, gardening, or cheering for her daughter from the side of the riding ring at local horse shows.
Audrey firmly believes in the importance of social and emotional learning for all children. Prior to joining the Board, she attended a conference with Christina Major to see Scarlett Lewis speak about the loss of her son in the Sandy Hook school shooting and the development of Choose Love. That conference provided a spark that led Audrey to the Cooper's Crossroad board.
Audrey has first hand knowledge of the impact that Cooper's Crossroad has on the lives of children. Twelve students from Cutler School participated in Farming for Resilience in 2019-20 school year. Throughout the program, staff witnessed growth and joy from the children. Audrey has a desire to strengthen the collaboration between Cooper's Crossroad and local schools in an effort to expand the FFR program to promote social and emotional learning for all children.
