(short class description)

About Me:  I was born and raised in Albany, New York and graduated from Plattsburgh State University of NY with a BA in Environmental Science.  I have worked as an Industrial Hygienist and in e-commerce before earning my teaching certificate in 2012.  This is my 7th year teaching and my 2nd at Desert Ridge.  When I have free time I like to play guitar, support the athletic adventures of my children and play with our two dogs.
