I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Integrated Elementary Education and Special Education with K-8 certification from Towson University in 2013.  As a student at Towson University, I was a member of Kappa Delta Pi International Honor Society in Education, Habitat for Humanity, and Best Buddies.  I also earned Cum Laude degree honors and recognition on the Dean’s List from Fall 2009 until I graduated in May 2013.  

While attending Towson University, I had an extensive student teaching experience by teaching at five public elementary schools in Baltimore County.  These professional teaching experiences allowed me to develop learning strategies that focus on meeting the diverse strengths, needs, talents, interests, and learning styles of all students.


This is my forth full year with the Southampton Township School District as a Special Education Language Arts teacher in School #3.  I joined the Southampton staff in December of 2013 after a former teacher retired.


I currently reside on Long Beach Island in Barnegat Light, New Jersey.  However, I grew up in Tabernacle and attended public school within Burlington County.  Due to these unforgettable learning experiences, I know that Southampton is committed to providing a safe, nurturing, and stimulating educational environment where everyone feels appreciated.

I enjoy going to the beach, playing tennis, and reading, as well as spending time with my family, friends, and two Labrador Retrievers.  In addition, I am also a tennis instructor and academic tutor for children ages four through eleven.
