I grew up and went to high school in Weedsport, NY. I went to college at SUNY Oswego where I received my undergraduate degree in Geology and Earth Science Education. After graduating from Oswego I got a job as an Earth Science Teacher and moved to Cobleskill, NY. I am now currently teaching and working on my graduate degree from SUNY Albany.
I love to swim, I swam in high school as well as during my four years at SUNY Oswego. I also enjoy hiking, I am currently working on completing the fire tower challenge in the Adirondacks. I currently have hiked 13 mountains with fire towers at the top.
