I grew up in Orchard Park where I went to Orchard Park High School and played volleyball, basketball, and softball. After high school, I received a full scholarship to play softball at Canisius College and study Physical and Health Education. I also received my Masters degree from Canisius College.
I had the opportunity to play against some of the top teams in the country while playing softball at Canisius. I had an amazing experience playing in the NCAAs in a Griff uniform. I also had the opportunity to play in the Empire State Games. We won the Gold Medal the last time they were held in 2010. Unfortunately, after that summer they were cut due to the economy.
I started my career in the West Seneca School district in 2008 and have been here ever since. I have worked at Potters Road Elementary, West Elementary and am currently teaching at West Senior. I am coaching girls modified volleyball, girls varsity basketball and girls JV softball. I also coached 1 year of Varsity Volleyball for the district in 2018 and 8 years of JV basketball.
I have two wonderful parents who I am so thankful for and are very supportive of everything I do in my life. I have a twin sister, Brittany, a older sister, Kristy, and an older brother, Jeffrey who I am so lucky to have in my life and call my family. Also, I can't forget my little pup- Charlie who is shown in the picture above.
