I was raised in Pennsylvania, but after marrying into the Navy, moved many times before settling in the Tidewater area. I am a graduate of Marywood College and earned my M.S. Ed. from Old Dominion University in Reading Education. I have taught in public schools in Maryland, preschools in several states and most recently, spent 7 years working with Kindergarten students in a Virginia Beach Catholic School. I have a son and a daughter and a sweet Goldendoodle named Roxy. In my free time, I enjoy cheering my children on in their sports, spending time at the beach and reading.
