I graduated from the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown and began my teaching career in the Parochial Schools in Johnstown. In 1997, I began teaching in the Greater Johnstown School District and then came to North Star in 1998 to teach Mathematics. I am currently teaching Keystone classes to help students prepare for the Keystone Test and I am teaching Algebra 2 and Pre-Calculus.
I have also been coaching volleyball for North Star since 1991. I have also been involved with the Greater Johnstown Volleyball Club Juniors Program since 1991 as a coach and/or administrator. I am also currently the President of the Pennsylvania Volleyball Coaches Association. I was inducted into the PVCA Hall of Fame in 2013.
