Elected to the State College Area School District Board of Directors in November of 2017, I’m happy to join a phenomenal team of individuals who care deeply about our schools and the kids and community they serve.
I’m an Associate Teaching Professor in the Department of Communication Arts & Sciences. I joined the department at UP in 2003, the same year I moved to the area with my husband and two daughters. A good chunk of that time has been spent teaching freshmen honor students, many of them who come from our district. They are often the best-prepared students in the room.
My husband, Don, is the General Manager of four radio stations in the community, under the ownership of Seven Mountains Media. He’s also been significantly engaged in a number of community organizations over the years.
My daughters graduated from our district in 2012 and 2015. As they’re living on their own now, I feel I have the time to give to a community that’s done so much for my family.
I have great respect for the citizens and work of this district and would consider it an honor to participate in the stewardship of our schools.
If you’d like to contact me to share your ideas and concerns, I’d love to hear from you.
