• Welcome!

    I graduated in 1992 from Rider University with a B.S. in Business & Marketing Education. 

    I have been teaching for 27 years with the last six being here at Jackson Liberty High School.  I have taught grades 9 through 12 and have worked with the American Institutes for Research Washington, D.C. assessing preschool students in urban city schools.  I am the proud mother of three children, two dogs and two cats.  

    I feel that teaching through technology is a must for preparing students for 21st Century Life and Careers.  Further, a healthy home-school relationship is essential for student growth and development.   

    I am the advisor to DECA which is an organization that prepares emerging leaders and entrepreneurs in marketing, finance, hospitality, and management in high schools and colleges around the globe.  I have been involved with DECA since high school as a chapter member, college chapter president, chapter advisor and served as the New Jersey DECA State Advisor.

    When I am not teaching,  I enjoy gardening and spending time at the beach.
