Academic Bio

I am currently finishing up my Bachelor's Degree online at Central Penn College, at this time I am currently working on my Capstone presentation which will be done by December of 2018.

Personal Bio

I am a local to the Central PA area who got very lucky to be able to teach in the program that I went through myself! I enjoy that I get to share my experiences with my students, especially because I was just in their shoes. I keep up to date as a therapist while working at the Harrisburg Hospital. In whatever free time I have left I spend with my family, friends, and my puppy Layla.

What are you most passionate about?

I am passionate about sharing my love and knowledge of Occupational Therapy. I enjoy being the bright spot and the person to lean on for both my patients and my students.

Teaching Philosophy

My teaching philosophy begins with understanding that at Central Penn College, we are all coming from different backgrounds, experience levels, and age groups. With that being said, I will strive to ensure that all my students feel comfortable in my classes when it comes to learning and sharing. My aim is to get each and every one of you to discover and meet your full potential.
