Brynnalee is excited to be home and to join the Parker Academy staff. Born and raised in Concord, she has spent the past eight years  living with her two sons and teaching art as a licensed Massachusetts educator. After high school, Brynnalee studied theatre at Emerson College in Boston prior to moving to California, where she pursued a career in professional acting and danced with The Khadra International Folk ballet. While on the west coast, she was also the lead singer for two San Francisco based bands. She returned to the East coast in 1999, to study art and psychology at Emmanuel College and Mass Art, where she concentrated in painting. 

She received her Masters in Education from American International College and recently completed a course in mindfulness and meditation from the UMass medical school in Worcester. In her free time, she can be found painting, taking pictures, walking in the woods, meditating, or dreaming of travel. She looks forward to sharing her love of visual and performing arts with the Parker students.
