Gail is a native Vermonter, who grew up riding horses, skiing, playing ice hockey and driving a forklift at her dad’s concrete block company. After graduating from the University of Vermont, where she earned her degree in Sociology, she moved to Washington, DC. There, she organized non-profit management workshops. After marrying her college sweetheart, they started working at Foxcroft School, in Middleburg, VA, a boarding and day school for 9-12th grade girls. While at Foxcroft, Gail found her passion as a special educator, and she decided to go back to school to earn a Masters Degree in Special Education for adolescents with learning disabilities. After graduating from George Washington University, she founded Foxcroft’s Learning Center. Once the second of their three girls was born, Gail left Foxcroft to open a private tutoring practice, which allowed her more time to be with her girls. She looks forward to working with the Hillside team. In her free time, she writes, travels, hikes, skis, and paddle boards.
