I attended Northeastern University and studied History Education for two years. I earned my B.S. in Health and Physical Education (K-12) at The College of New Jersey. I began my professional teaching experience here in Montgomery Township.
I am a 1996 graduate of Trenton State College with a Health and Physical Education certification. I grew up in Illinois and spent the fist two years of college focusing on general education classes and playing basketball for Southern Illinois at Edwardsville. I started my career at Orchard Hill Elementary School 9 years ago right out of college. In the nine years in the district I have coached soccer, basketball, swimming, and lacrosse. I currently keep the clock for our middle school basketball games and referee in the recreation basketball league on the weekends. My hobbies are training my flat-coated retriever, dog sitting for families that go on vacation, and playing golf.
