I am honored and delighted to be a member of the administrative team at Downingtown High School East. I look forward to building on our tradition of teamwork and open communication to ensure a positive and productive learning environment.

Beginning my career as a mathematics teacher at Downingtown Junior High, I subsequently moved to the 9th Grade Center, and began teaching at Downingtown East in 2003. Born and raised in Vineland, New Jersey. I hold a BS in Secondary Mathematics Education from Temple University, a Masters Degree in Education Administration from Cabrini College and am currently enrolled at Immaculata University in the K-12 Educational Leadership Doctoral Program

My vision for Downingtown East is to continue our journey to become the best possible environment for students to achieve “Educational Excellence.” Challenging our students to continue to develop the necessary critical thinking skills needed for success in an ever-changing society, and promoting confidence and positive attitudes will create an environment that enables exceptional scholastic and personal growth – equipping our students to be their best.
