I was born in Saddle Brook, New Jersey, but spent most of my life in Norman and now reside in Spencer, Oklahoma. I attended and graduated from Norman Public Schools. I received both my Bachelor's degree and my Master's degree from the University of Oklahoma.
I taught in Norman from 1993-2007. I have taught Special Education, C.A.R.E., Language Arts, Math, Science (grades 6-8), and Discovery Science. I am currently teaching seventh grade Science and Pre-AP Science. I am also a sponsor for the Robotics Club and a sponsor for the Dance Committee.
