I have been teaching kindergarten at Juniata since 2009. Prior to coming to Juniata, I’ve spent time as both a Reading tutor and preschool teacher at the Learning Express Preschool in our district. I graduated from Mount Aloysius College with a Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education. I also have a Master’s degree from Gannon University in Curriculum and Instruction.
I live in Altoona, with my husband and two daughters. When I’m not teaching, I enjoy painting and all things outdoors. I spend summers boating, playing tennis and recently began golf lessons. My daughters take pride in the fact that they are much better golfers than I am! In winter months, I enjoy skiing and snowboarding and helping others learn to ski.
I enjoy being part of the Juniata family and creating lasting memories with new Juniata friends.
