I embrace the importance of remaining active for a lifetime and I am an advocate for physical education. I received a Bachelor’s of Science from Ithaca College where I majored in both PE and business. A few years later, I was awarded an M.S.Ed. from SUNY Cortland, majoring in special education. I am a National Board Certified teacher and taught elementary physical education for 10 years. Currently I am an adjunct lecturer at SUNY Cortland. From 2015-2020 I worked in the private sector as a Regional Sales Manager for BSN Sports. This role allowed me to work closely with OPEN as a member of the Development Council and National Trainer. Currently, I am working as a consultant to support both physical education and physical activity. I love sharing my passion and enthusiasm with others.
