Why HSH? This place is magical, and we are fortunate to spend time each day enhancing the development of children.

What causes or non-profits do you support and why? Other than Hollywood Schoolhouse, I support Project Angel Food because I believe that food is essential to all of us. I am an active board member and wholeheartedly believe in its mission.

What is one thing people would be surprised to learn about you? I have two tattoos, both to honor two very special people in my life who have passed on.

What piece of advice would you give to a graduating sixth grader? My hope for you is that you continue searching, learning, questioning, sharing, and listening, because one day you will be called upon to use all of your knowledge for good. Remember, we are always here rooting for you.
