About Me
Educational Background: 

B.S. Animal Science, with minors in Agribusiness Management and Equine Science-Penn State University

Teacher Certification-Penn State University

Biographical Sketch: 

I grew up on a small hobby farm outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.  I was an active member of 4-H where I showed horses and rabbits for 10 years.  After graduating high school I attended The Pennsylvania State University, where I earned my degree in Animal Science.  While working in the industry, I realized that my passion was educating people (youth and adults) about agriculture.   I went back to school to earn my Teaching Certificate, and moved to a small town north of Indianapolis, Indiana.  I spent four years teaching agriculture at Lebanon High School, and was one of four FFA advisors.  I am so excited to be at Poudre High School, and look forward to this new adventure!
