I hope and believe that the world can be a better place when every child knows that her voice matters, and when the balance of power shifts enough to allow all of us to listen. Serviam is an agent for that magnitude of transformation.

Serviam offers a vast of opportunities to educate the whole child. My passion is to be a part of modeling today's scholars into tomorrow's future! The girls have so much potential that we tap into each and every day! It can't get any better than that!

When I visited Serviam for the first time I met a student who told me that her goal was to learn as much as humanly possible. At that moment I knew that this was the right place for me. It is so important to give students who want to learn the best opportunity to do just that.

Science, Religion & Technology

When I first stepped into Serviam, I knew it was a special place. Since then, I get to work with scholars exploring the world around us in science. Witnessing that moment when a person finally grasps a concept is what inspires me as a teacher, as well as learning new things myself. It is my philosophy that anyone who is willing can learn anything.

Education must be an equal opportunity for all. What brought me to Serviam was the passion each faculty and staff member had for the mission of ensuring the success of our scholars.

As my role in Graduate Support, I have the great opportunity to assist our girls to success and continue communications with our graduates to be of support when needed.

SGA is an exceptional school with dedicated and inspiring teachers and staff with a mission that I truly believe in.  I volunteer here to help in any way I can to further the program and goals of the school.  For the past 6 years I have seen the program in action, and for the most part, the resulting transition of the students from 5th grade through 8th grade has been outstanding.
