Currently, I am a middle school English teacher. This past February I successfully defended my doctoral dissertation in educational leadership. Having earned that degree, I seek to offer my services to educators whose values engender thought-provoking, imaginative, and compassionate action. With more than fifteen years’ experience in teaching, I am deeply committed to teaching and upholding student-centered values.
Promoting an understanding of content at a much higher level, I weave in twenty-first century interdisciplinary themes which can help students master the multi-dimensional abilities that will be required of them in the future.

I have earned a Bachelor of Arts with Honors in English and Theatre at Hamilton College; a Master of Arts in Teaching with Honors, English, at Montclair State University; a Master of Arts in English with an English Department Award for Highest Distinction in Literary Studies at Rutgers University; a Master’s in Educational Leadership from NJ Excel, and a doctorate in educational leadership at the College of St. Elizabeth. In addition, I am pursuing a Master of Letters (MLitt) degree at The Middlebury Bread Loaf School of English. As you can see, I am a lifelong learner.
Before I entered the teaching profession, I was an editor at Art & Antiques magazine, Omni Magazine, and The New Yorker magazine.
