Bio
I have lived in Connecticut my entire life; I grew up in the Hartford area but have also lived in New Haven, Danbury and Thomaston. I enjoy living and working in CT. I have worked in business for over 15 years starting with my first job at 15 as a teller in a local bank. I can recall aspiring to work in business at a young age and achieved my goal by obtaining my Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration at Western CT State University. Since receiving my Bachelor’s, I have held a variety of positions working in such fields of business as Human Resources, Operations, Retail, Customer Service and Management.

Even though I found success in business I was not fulfilled by my career so I decided to go back to school to earn a Master’s in Education to become a high school business teacher. I received my degree from the University of Bridgeport as well as a teaching certificate in Business Education for 7-12th grades. Working in a school system as a part of my educational process was more rewarding and challenging than any job I have had previously.

I feel lucky to have received a position at Goodwin College, shortly after earning my Master's degree. I did not intend on working in higher education but I quickly realized that it was my calling. Since I started at Goodwin in 2010, I have been able to make a difference in students’ lives through my roles as a faculty member and academic advisor.

Teaching Philosophy
My philosophy of education is that all students have the potential to succeed. I feel that all students have the ability to be successful if they believe in themselves and have teachers that can guide and motivate them. A great teacher can inspire success from their students when they are truly inspired themselves. Additionally, if a teacher provides students with the opportunities to thrive then students need to guarantee their success by taking advantage of the help.
