Bio:
Prior to moving to Salt Lake City six (6) years ago, Annette lived in New York City where she worked for a Fortune 50 Company for over 13 years. She joined The McGillis team in July 2019.  

When she isn’t working to support The McGillis School’s mission, Annette can be found exploring Utah with her family, shopping the local farmer's markets, cooking, photographing, and traveling whenever possible. She and her husband, Jon, are the proud parents of a new McGillis Magpie.

 

I am currently reading:
Enjoying every moment of reading to my little guy for as long as he wants me to (or until he learns to read on his own). A few of our current favorites include The Magic Tree House series and Mr. Penguin And The Lost Treasure. In the meantime, my bedside table is piling up with Becoming by Michelle Obama, UnSelfie by Michele Borba (thanks Mary Kimball for the recommendation), Daring Greatly by Brene Brown. And I just preordered The Giver of Stars by Jojo Moyes. 

 

Favorite McGillis lunch:
Waiting to try them all before I commit to a favorite. 

 

Favorite McGillis moment:
After completing his first week of kindergarten, my son asking if he "could stay at McGillis until he's an adult". 

 

What is a powerful moment you experienced at school?
Upon completing my associate degree while working full-time, my mentor asked me "if I had enrolled for my bachelor's degree yet"? Tina, thank you for always providing a gentle nudge.
