Dept Chair / 802.527. 6425 /

I've been a teacher at BFA since 2004 after working at Cold Career Center in Enosburg Falls for eight years. I graduated from BFA St. Albans, St. Michael's College (Bachelor's in Business and Education), and received my Master's in Sports Management from The United States Sports Academy. When I'm not teaching you can find me enjoying time with friends and family, coaching, golfing, kayaking, biking, and hanging by the lake. My favorite sports teams are the New York Yankees, Boston Celtics, and the New England Patriots. My favorite foods are: Chicken and Biscuits, Cheesecake, Black Raspberry Ice Cream, Maple Creemees

Mission Statement:
I strive to strengthen students' talents and skills through life-long learning activities to inspire them to pursue excellence and achieve happy, fulfilled lives as productive adult citizens. I am a Bostonian! I love the Red Sox, Celtics, Patriots and Bruins. My passions are spending time with my family and animals, and teaching. I enjoy camping, cooking, kayaking, horseback riding, reading, theater, sewing, crocheting, quilting and knitting. Even though I grew up in the city, I consider myself a country girl at heart enjoying anything in nature. I love Vermont for all it has to offer, including the diverse beauty of all five seasons!
