BA Gettysburg College
MS Seton Hall University

I was born and raised in South Jersey, where I spent most of my childhood surrounded by my brothers and cousins, playing sports, and reading. In high school, I developed a passion for American history, which led me to Gettysburg College, where I was introduced to and fell in love with athletic training. After earning my degree in health sciences and gaining experience with the Gettysburg athletic trainers, I moved back to NJ to pursue my master's degree in athletic training. After graduating, I drove over 3,000 miles to San Francisco with my best friend, camping, hiking, and exploring along the way. I returned to the east coast to begin a year-long internship at Brown University, where I worked closely with the women's volleyball and women's rugby teams. While I greatly enjoyed my time at Brown and in Providence, I am excited for my new start in New Hampshire with the Dublin School.

What book has made you think the most? Frankenstein by Mary Shelley.

What teacher has had the greatest impact on you? Why were they special? Denise Peters, my high school English teacher, who supported me continuously in both academics and in life.

How would your friends describe you in three words? Compassionate, loyal, nerdy.

What is your favorite course you have taken in high school or college? Any English course I took in college. They provided a refreshing break from my major requirements and allowed me to receive credit for two of my favorite things, reading and writing!

I am most happy when... I am cuddled up with a book on a rainy day or relaxing with friends, family, and pets.
