About me:

I am originally from Cleveland, but grew up and spent my childhood in Lebanon, Ohio where I attended St. Francis de Sales Elementary School and Bishop Fenwick High School.

Family Info:

My family and I are very close. My wonderful parents are still located in Lebanon, my older sister and her family live in Colorado Springs, my brother lives in Kentucky, and my younger sister is in her final year of study at the University of Dayton. We love to get together as often as possible and truly enjoy any time we are able to be together.


When I'm not teaching, I love to support Cleveland sports teams, especially the Indians and Browns! I also enjoy playing sports, spending time with my family and friends, traveling for leisure and for mission trips, and serving on the Enrollment Committee at Bishop Fenwick High School. I am an avid baseball fan and it is on my bucket list to visit every MLB park…8 down, 22 to go!

What brought me to Incarnation:

I immediately felt at home at Incarnation after my interview and was thrilled to be offered a position to work here. I was drawn in my the family support, the high academic expectations, and the friendly staff and teachers. Working at Incarnation has forced me to become a better teacher and I have loved every minute of being here.
