I received my undergraduate degree from Buffalo State College in Criminal Justice and worked for a number of years as a juvenile probation officer.  Deciding that my early career choice had not been my true calling, I did a post-baccalaureate mathematics core at the University of Central Florida.  I started teaching middle school and kept learning!  I went on to teach high school and taking further math classes.  Found out along the way that not only was I really good at math but loved it as well!  I received my master’s degree in Statistics from UCF in 2000 and began teaching at the collegiate level. 

     Teaching a challenging academic subject in the community college environment was definitely where I was meant to be, it combines the counseling and empathy learned from my early career with the pure love of mathematics.  I enjoy helping young people who are just starting on their academic journey, to people making career changes later in life.  

     Born and raised in upstate New York, I consider myself a “born again” Floridian.  I love gardening in the summer in the middle of the day, the warmer the better!  My husband and I have two great kids and we love to do things as a family like camping, biking and traveling.
