Brief Bio: 

Upon graduation from Villanova University, I volunteered for a year in Worcester, MA, teaching ESL and running afterschool programs.  Following my passions for education, travel, and learning about other cultures, I then taught English in the Republic of Georgia.  I learned to converse in the Georgian language, improved my Russian skills, and travelled throughout much of Georgia and nearby countries.  I also spent a summer in Slovenia and earned my CELTA certificate to teach ESL.  In 2013, I returned stateside to teach and earn my master’s degree.  I still spend summers travelling both within the US and overseas, and have visited 40 states and 30 countries.  I am also a certified rescue diver, and in addition to scuba diving, I love hiking, kayaking, and canoeing.
