As the School Operations Manager at Fox Park, I am dedicated to making sure our team, scholars, and families have a wonderful experience with us. I have been with EAGLE since early 2017, and my joy for our model continues to grow! I bring a varied experience from my time within the medical and service industry, that I now devote within EAGLE. After moving from the East Coast to the South, I realized the best fit would be in St. Louis at EAGLE: Fox Park. I look forward to our families in the upcoming year!
