Personal Message

I was born in Watertown, NY but grew up in a very small town called Sackets Harbor located on beautiful Lake Ontario. After graduation, I lived in the Watertown area right up until my move to Bluffton in a few years ago. I worked in various types of businesses including banking, insurance, and in a NYS prison before deciding to teach. 

I taught business classes at South Jefferson Central School for 3 years and another 10 years at Watertown High School before our department was wiped out with budget cuts in 2010. In the past 7 years, before deciding to return to teaching, I helped start and run a medical transport business and operated a small baking business on the side. 

My family decided to leave snow country for the Lowcountry in the summer of 2015 when my daughter chose to attend Coastal Carolina University. I owned and operated a children's consignment shop in Bluffton for about a year before I started subbing in the local schools. I was hired this year to teach Marketing and Entrepreneurship, which has been an exciting challenge. I live in Bluffton with my husband, my son (a BLHS freshman) and our dog Benny. We love living in this beautiful area and are proud to be part of Bobcat Nation! 

My goal this year and every year is to teach "real skills for real life" and enjoy watching my students' growth in and out of the classroom.
