Frances has been the administrative director at MWS since 2013. Before joining the school, she spent nine years as leader of administration for the Association of Waldorf Schools of North America (AWSNA). While with AWSNA, she was on the International Forum for Waldorf/Steiner Education with members from 30+ other countries, participating in leadership for Waldorf education worldwide.
Prior to working for AWSNA, she was administrator at the City of Lakes Waldorf School in Minneapolis for ten years. At City of Lakes, she played a key leadership role when the school went through the process of purchasing its current home. She was also fortunate to have been the handwork teacher for eight years.
Frances and her husband sent their two, now adult, sons to the City of Lakes Waldorf School, and Frances had the good fortune to attend a Waldorf School herself in New York state from kindergarten through eighth grade. Her education includes art school, administrative and governance certifications, and the ongoing educational experience of participating in educational leadership and doing school consultations.
