This is my twelfth year teaching English at Coventry High School. I earned my bachelor's degree in English and minored in Psychology at Kent State University. From there, I went to The University of Akron, where I earned a master's degree in English Literature. For five years after, I worked as a reporter and editor of a local weekly newspaper and then as the managing editor of two national trade publications. I then returned to Kent State to earn a master's degree in education (M.A.T.). In addition to teaching at Coventry, I have taught Composition at The University of Akron as a graduate assistant and have been an adjunct instructor at Kent State University in the English Department, the Department of Journalism and Mass Communication, and the Honors College.
I live in Stow with my two cats and my husband who works as a firefighter/paramedic. I have one daughter; she has started her third year as an orchestra teacher in another district.
I enjoy reading, writing, watching movies, interior design, fashion, music, and traveling.
