I grew up in Allegany and graduated from Allegany Central School.
I went to college at Saint Bonaventure University and received my Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education and Secondary Social Studies.
In 1997 I received my Master's Degree in Special Education.
Before being hired at Genesee Valley I substituted at many area schools and worked various jobs.
I have been teaching 9-12 Special Education for the past nineteen years.
I am an Odyssey of the Minds coach, the volleyball book keeper for the boys and girls teams, and a member of the Curriculum Council.
I bought a house in Belmont in 2003 and I enjoy being part of the community.
