Hello, and thank you for visiting my classroom page!
It is hard to believe this is my tenth year teaching Family and Consumer Science here at Lancaster High School! Prior to this experience, I taught both Health Education and Family and Consumer Science courses at Tonawanda High School for eight years.
I obtained my Bachelor's Degree in Nutrition and Dietetics from Buffalo State College, completed a post graduate internship in Nashville, Tennessee and obtained the credentials of Registered Dietitian. I worked for many years as a dietitian in an acute care/hospital setting with Kaleida Health and Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas, in Dallas, Texas. Furthermore, I spent three years working as the campus nutritionist at Syracuse University. I returned to Buffalo State College and obtained a Master’s Degree in Career and Technical Education, and I am also a certified personal trainer, spinning instructor, and TRX instructor.
I teach several elective classes here at Lancaster High School including Food and Nutrition and Food and Culture, as well as Fitness and Food. Additionally, I am the Director of the Academy of Hospitality and Tourism, a member of the Building Planning Team, District Wellness Committee, and a district data coach.
