Welcome! I have been teaching at AAHS for 11 years. I teach American Studies and Academic World Studies. A proud alum of Bishop Guilfoyle High School, I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science & History from Saint Vincent College. I hold a Master's Degree in Corporate Communications from Duquesne University. Teaching is a second career for me; for 25 years prior, I worked in the field of marketing and public relations. In addition to teaching here, I am an adjunct instructor in the college of communications at Penn State Altoona.
