Born and raised in Upstate New York, I attended St. Bonaventure University and SUNY Cortland, then graduated from S.U.N.Y at Geneseo where I earned my Bachelor's degree in English. Upon moving to NC, I earned my Masters degree in Reading, Language, and Literacy from UNC Charlotte. This is my 14th year of teaching and my third year at Cox Mill High School. I am currently working toward earning my National Board certification.
I have two children. My daughter is a junior at UNCC and my son is a junior here at Cox Mill. 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 wonderful dogs, Toby and Sophie, and two kittens, Riley and River.
I love music, traveling, movies, theater, basketball games, reading, and spending time with family and friends.
