Biography

This is my 20th year of teaching at Gannon, and each year is better than the last. My husband and I have four children: Kevin, Ryan, Hannah, and Jared. We also have Zeke, a black lab mix we acquired from a rescue organization who surprisingly has been a great joy.

A couple of years ago, I decided to begin working toward a Master’s in English because I thought it would be fun and would pair well with my mathematics background. So I know (again) what it is like to do homework! My latest hobby is freeform dancing at a local movement studio, but I previously dabbled with the drums, piano, singing, and tap dancing, just to name a few. Oh, and I can’t forget to mention my love of kayaking the waves of Lake Erie, and my newest adventure--paddleboarding. Life is fun!
