My career began as a high school English teacher in Amityville, New York. I enjoyed teaching high school and worked extensively creating community service programs to enhance academic and social progress for students with disabilities. For the three years before moving to Texas, I was an adjunct instructor at Ft. Polk, Louisiana. After my husband retired from twenty years of service in the Army, I was blessed enough to earn a teaching position at UMHB. I have been teaching at UMHB since August 2016.
I earned my BA from Dakota Wesleyan University in Secondary Education/English, completed my MA in English at The University of South Dakota, and earned a Post-Masters Certificate in Educational Leadership from The State University of New York at Stony Brook. In May 2023, I became an alumnus of UMHB, earning my Ed.D. in Educational Administration.
My husband, Eric (UMHB Class of 2010), and I are both native New Yorkers but now reside in Georgetown, Texas. My daughter, Bella, graduated from UMHB with her BS in 2021 and her MS in 2022. Our son, Diego, is a freshman at UMHB. And our youngest, Leo, is a high school junior and enjoys choir and powerlifting. Our sweet black lab is named Izzy. We attend First United Methodist Church in Georgetown, TX. I truly enjoy traveling, spending time with my family and friends, and reading.
It is truly a blessing to be a member of the UMHB family.
