Born and raised in Upstate New York, I attended both St. Bonaventure University and S.U.N.Y at Geneseo where I earned my Bachelor's degree in English. I then attended S.U.N.Y at Cortland, where I earned my teaching license. I moved to NC in 1996 and earned my Masters degree in Reading, Language, and Literacy from UNC Charlotte in 1999. This is my 12th year of teaching and my first year at Cox Mill High School.
I have two children. My daughter, Taylor, is a senior here at CMHS and my son, Aidan, is in 8th grade at HRMS. We were fortunate to have lived in both England and Wales for a year and a half and did lots of traveling while living abroad. We still love to travel and make our way across the pond every other summer. We have two dogs, Toby and Sophie, who are a huge part of our family.
I love music, traveling, movies, theater, basketball games, and spending time with family and friends.
