About Me
I have been working at MASH since December 2016.  Prior to that, I was the Life Skills Teacher and Transition Coordinator for Carlisle High School.  I have worked as a Transition Coordinator for almost 20 years (a long time!).  I received my undergraduate degree (in Biology) from Indiana University of PA.  I attended Millersville University and George Washington University for graduate school, specializing in Special Education and Secondary Transition.
My husband and I have 3 children- Matthew, Hannah and Daniel.  We also have a dog, Pippa, who is German Shepard/Yellow Lab mix.  In my free time, I enjoy going to the beach, taking walks and spending time with my family and friends.
