BACKGROUND: 
I was born and raised in Egg Harbor Township and now I reside in the nearby community, Somers Point.  I am a proud graduate of the class of 2000 from EHTHS.  I attended West Virginia University for my undergraduate degree in Health and Physical Education. I have since graduated from Walden University with a master's degree in Education with a Specialization in Teacher Leadership.   I have always had strong passion for teaching and coaching, which lead me into this profession at an early age.  I love the opportunity I have to work with our youth in both academic and athletic capacities to promote a better future.
