This is my seventh year teaching Physical Education and Health at Renaissance. I graduated from Springfield College with a degree in Movement Science and Health and recently graduated from Westfield State University with my Master's in Education. 

I grew up in upstate New York and love being outdoors and physically active. I love participating in all sports, especially softball, field hockey, ping pong, racquetball, basketball and tennis. I’m super-competitive and love when students challenge me to a ping pong game....try if you dare!

I have a baby daughter, and three fur babies (2 cats and a dog) and my husband also works in the Springfield Public School system. We are avid NY Yankee fans and also love to travel!

I grew up in Springfield and Amherst, Massachusetts. I attended Skidmore College in upstate New York and graduated with a degree in Government. I then returned to Western Massachusetts to earn my Master in the Art of Teaching from UMass-Amherst. This is my 14th year at the Springfield Renaissance School and my third as the English Instructional Leadership Specialist. Outside of school, I enjoy time with my husband and two children, Finn and Isabel, and go on hikes, travel, cook, read, and drinks lots of chai tea.
