I joined the Running River strategic planning team  for countless reasons. More than the fact that I want to support and be involved in the school of my son, is the inspiration I feel knowing what an exceptional and intentional education they strive to give each child. For me, Running River stands for something critical to the evolution and healing of our modern world - and that is something I am honored to help and learn from.
