I graduated from Elizabeth Forward High School in Elizabeth Pennsylvania. I attended New York Christian Institute for one year. (I survived the BLIZZARD of 77 in Buffalo New York).  I then moved to Tennessee and attended Milligan College and took some classes at East Tennessee State University.  I graduated with Bachelor of Science Degree in Health, Physical and recreation and certified in Elementary Education . I then moved from East Tennessee to Danville Virginia to raise a family.  My family came here to Martinsburg West Virginia in 1986.  I attended West Virginia University where I received  my Masters Degree in Communication Studies. 

I started teaching in Berkeley County in 1988 at Tomahawk Elementary School.  I left the school system after 2 years and worked at City Hospital as a Recreational therapist.  I went back to teaching at Hedgesville Middle then Tuscarora Elementary school.  I opened Mountain Ridge Intermediate in 2005 teaching 4th grade.  

I was the Berkeley County Teacher of the Year finalist in 2006-2007 and 2015-2016.  I am involved in many community activities, groups, organizations, and participate in community events.  I also have been working at Winchester Medical Center since 1993 as a Activity therapist, Administration Associate, and Mental Health Associate. 


I have considered Mountain Ridge to be my second home and would love to retire from this school.  We are family!
