I teach Accounting, Personal Finance, Principles of Business, Marketing & Finance, Employment 101, and I coordinate the Senior Internship and MedStart Job Shadowing programs. In addition, I collaborate with our Guidance Department and VIPS program to offer students various extra-curricular career and job related programs.
Currently, I am on the Board of Directors for the Falmouth Chamber of Commerce, and a committee member on the Cape & Islands Workforce Investment Board's School-to-Careers Committee.
Prior to joining Falmouth High I taught in Barnstable, and I was the Site Director for the 21st Century Community Learning Center for Barnstable’s Hyannis East Elementary School.
Prior to teaching I spent nearly twenty years in marketing. I was a Marketing Manager for Chadwick’s of Boston Catalog, worked at Hill, Holladay, Connors, Cosmopulous Advertising Agency, and was a Marketing Consultant for various New England companies.
I have a B.S. in Advertising, and a M.Ed. in Educational Leadership. I am licensed as an Elementary Teacher, Business Teacher and Assistant Principal/Principal for grades 9-12.
Outside of school I enjoy kayaking, hiking, woodworking, remodeling and cooking. I am a lifelong learner – often engaged in a continuing education course and reading non-fiction articles and books. My interests include: business, personal finance, and technology.
