Throughout my professional career I have worn many different hats. After graduating from Penn State, I found myself working in the fast-paced and challenging world of Insurance Claims. While this career was very exciting and full of opportunity, ultimately, I felt my calling was to be found in an academic, student-centered profession.

This belief led me to pursue my master’s degree in Education, which brought me to the world of High School English teaching, where I have spent the last eight years. It was in teaching that I feel I was able to really hone who I am as a professional.

I am excited to be joining Penn State where I hope to channel all my previous skills into the furthering of my student’s goals.
