Gerstell Academy welcomes Heidi Lippy Sprinkle to our staff. Heidi will be wearing several hats this year while working with the administration and admissions on several special projects; she will be dedicating her afternoons to assisting in the Middle School/Athletics Office. Heidi previously served in Maryland boarding and day schools as a Director of Admissions & Financial Aid. Her positions included working with accreditation teams for Middle States, serving on the advisory board for AIMS, and representing North American Boarding Schools internationally. She stepped out of the workforce after her third daughter arrived and has spent the past eleven years as COO of the Sprinkle Family and serving as a professional volunteer running a Girl Scout troop, managing local rec sports programs, and serving in schools and her church. Heidi is a lifelong resident of Carroll County and lives on the farm where she and her father were raised. She has a long resume but her favorite title is Carroll County Farmer's Daughter. She and her husband Mark have three girls attending Gerstell: Maddie '20, Olivia '24, and Becca '26. She looks forward to stepping back into school, working with students, serving our faculty, and meeting our parents. Please welcome Heidi as she hits the ground running next week.
