I have my Bachelor of Arts degree in Adolescence Education & English from Houghton College. I then attended the State University of New York at Fredonia where I earned my Certificate of Advanced Study in Professional Writing and my M.A. in English. My Master’s thesis focused on student voice and authentic choice in the classroom; it was published in Connections, the Georgia Council of Teachers of English Journal in 2017. I most recently taught English 100 – Composition at SUNY Fredonia. I then lived in Buffalo, NY and worked as a grant writer.
I now live in Houghton, NY and am SO excited to join the Fillmore family! My hobbies include baking, theater, and reading (but don’t ask me to pick a favorite book – there are too many great ones to choose from!). I also love watching sports games, especially soccer, basketball, and volleyball. Go Fillmore Eagles!
