About

I have been working at Harford Community College full time since 2015 and part time since 2008.  I have lived in Harford County, MD since I was 2 years old.  I attended Bel Air Elementary, Southampton Middle, and C Milton Wright High school.  I enjoy teaching in the same county that I have called my home all of my life. In my free time I enjoy running, mountain biking, kayaking, and spending time with my three children, husband, and Pomeranian.
