Scott is a writer and non-profit manager with a passion for sustainable development, education, and gender equity issues. She has lived in seven countries on four continents, working with schools, international development agencies, and local non-profits.
While Scott has been writing for a lifetime, she only recently began to spread her work. Her writings have appeared in Montessori Leadership Magazine, the Albany Times Union, and the Sarasota Herald Tribune. She is currently writing two books, one about her time living in India and one about the Montessori competencies we need to cultivate over a lifetime.
Scott has been a Peace Corps Volunteer in West Africa, an editor at a law firm in Belgium, an English teacher at a Montessori High School in Florida, a tutor in a girls’ orphanage in India, and the Director for Kenya, Uganda, and the Sudan for a large international nonprofit. She presents regularly on gender equity and international development. While living in India, Scott’s research on gender issues led her to the concept that would become SPOILED, a play about violence and masculinity.
She was educated at the University of Pennsylvania (BA), Princeton University (MPA), and New York University School of Law (JD) and holds Montessori (I and II) certifications.
Scott serves on the board of the BARKA Foundation and UN Women USA and the Dining For Women Grant Selection Committee, is Chair of the Through Women’s Eyes International Film Festival, President of the Gulf Coast Chapter of UN Women USA, and Treasurer of the board of the Museum of Political Corruption in New York. She is an avid amateur athlete but, most importantly, she keeps a sense of humor, always looks forward to tomorrow, and sincerely hopes we all do our part to raise conscious, well-educated 21st-century citizens.
