EducationGraduated summa kum laude from the State University of New York at Geneseo in 2011, where I majored in History and minored in English. I received multiple awards and scholarships for my consistently outstanding writing and research projects. Full transcript and references available upon request.
For the last eight years, I have been empowering my students to learn with my positive energy and expertise. If it is reading, writing, research, or a humanities subject that has you or your child struggling-congratulations! You have found the person that will help you take charge of the learning experience and hopefully even help you to enjoy this beautifully complex world of letters we live in.

HobbiesI have been described by many as a happy nerd. My main hobbies include creative writing and Marvel comics, but I'm also very comfortable out doors. I enjoy hiking, aerobic cross training, and long distance bike riding especially. Throughout middle and high school I also dabbled in the creative arts and was trained as an opera singer, so if your child is doing NYSSMA or SCMEA right now, we will definitely be able to commiserate!
