Brief Bio:

Education has been a life long love of mine as well as children, science, and math! After a brief tenure in a chemistry lab position, I worked in the pharmaceutical industry for ten years. I then taught computer science at the two-year-college level and high school science before joining Haddonfield Friends. My special interests in science are chemistry, kitchen science, forensics, coding, and makerspace projects. In my spare time, I enjoy crafting, going to the movies, and reading cozy mysteries. I love any beach anywhere and traveling but stay-cations with my husband and 2 small children are my favorites!!
