Academic Bio 

As an alumni of Central Penn, I started my career as a medical assistant with the associate degree I earned. The experience I had obtaining my associate was such a positive one, I decided in 2007 to come back to Central Penn to complete a Bachelor of Business Administration that would further my career goals. I completed my bachelor degree and became a program director at one of the local colleges. That inspired me to go back to school again to obtain a Master's Degree in Adult Learning so I can be better prepared to teach adult learners, both traditional and non-traditional students. I finally feel like I am home again since my career path has lead me back to Central Penn where I first started my journey. I am excited to have a full time instructor position teaching the students my passion for the medical field!

Personal Bio

My life evolves around my two boys and my husband who is a self-employed mason. Our schedule stay busy with working full time, church activities, and our sons extra curricular activities. I find myself constantly looking for more to do for my family, my students, and others. I am not one to sit and let opportunities pass me by. I enjoy volunteering at my sons elementary schools, leading a cub scout den, and teaching in the preschool room at church. I have done a medical work n witness trip to Haiti which makes me appreciate the things I take for granted daily.

What are you most passionate about?

My passion is serving and helping students to obtain their goals! I share their struggles and know how hard it is to obtain a degree for yourself when you have a family and financial responsibilities.

Teaching Philosophy

Teaching is so much more than just lecturing and presentations. Teaching is helping students not only learn the course materials but learning life skills and professionalism to help them obtain a job in their chosen field. In my courses, I expect students to participate and engage with other students in the class by sharing their experiences, their stories that relate to the topic at hand. I have learned that my experiences and others experiences is what keeps bringing students back to the classroom wanting more. Experiences brings the course materials to life and it makes the student want to continue to work through their obstacles to obtain their goals.
