I am a proud graduate of the Richland School District (class of '97). I received my teaching degree from UPJ, and my Master’s Degree in Education from Saint Francis University. I began my career in Baltimore, Maryland in 2001 as a high school social studies teacher. I relocated back to Johnstown and served as a long-term substitute at Richland prior to being hired full-time. I've enjoyed teaching World History, U.S. History, American Government, Psychology, and Character and Leadership. Currently, I am teaching 7th Grade Civics and Sports and Society for Virtual High School. I am very active in our local community having coached football for the Richland Rockets, baseball for VEA, basketball for EHR and the YMCA, and soccer for Richland AYSO.
