I attended EB from 1983 until 1988, from first to fifth grade, before EB had a Middle School. In many ways, it was one of the best experiences of my childhood. My experience at EB had a significant impact on my perspective as well as my sense of self. I left with the sense that I was capable of learning almost anything and succeeding in almost any environment. In addition to an excellent bilingual education, EB’s culture of inclusiveness and its open approach to learning changed the way I conceptualized the world around me as well as how I approach that which is unfamiliar. I have often thought of these as my strongest attributes.

As an investment management attorney, advising clients regarding regulatory, transactional and counseling matters involving the securities and commodities laws, I find that the foundation laid at EB has helped me every step of the way.

I joined the EB board this year because I wanted to give something back to the school that gave so much to me. I am grateful to be able to share my experience and hope to contribute to future generations of EB graduates.
