To get to know our new faculty and staff a little better, we asked them to answer a few questions from the Proust Questionnaire — the famous set of questions that Vanity Fair asks celebrities on its back page. Today, we learn a little more about Upper School Health & Wellness Faculty Brandy Fisher-Bailey, who also serves as head coach of the girls varsity hockey team. An All-American during her college days at the University of New Hampshire, Fisher-Bailey is the proud inaugural recipient of the Patty Kazmaier Memorial Award, given annually to the top player in NCAA Division 1 women’s ice hockey.
What is your idea of perfect happiness?
Spending a night at home cuddled up on the couch with my family watching a movie or sporting event with a big bowl of popcorn.
What is your greatest extravagance?
An 80-minute massage.
Where would you most like to live?
I would love to live in Lake Placid, New York. Our family loves spending time hiking, mountain biking, and fishing, and Lake Placid is one of our favorite places to enjoy these activities.
What do you most value in your friends?
Laughter — and that means my friends both laughing at my jokes and then making me laugh. There is nothing more therapeutic than a good laugh with a friend.
What is your motto?
Champions are made when no one is watching.
