Bio:

Originally from Aroostook County, I left Maine in 2001 to pursue my undergraduate degree in English Literature from Elmira College.  I continued my education in New York State, receiving my graduate degree in Women's Studies from SUNY Albany in 2008.  While in graduate school, I had my first teaching experiences.  First, at the St. Anne Institute, I taught language arts on a secure unit of violent female juvenile offenders between the ages of 11 and 17.  My experiences there led me to pursue juvenile justice, with a focus on preventative education, as my concentration in my graduate program.  I was later selected for a graduate assistantship through the UAlbany Counseling Center, where I instructed undergraduate peer education courses and led campus-wide prevention programming.

Upon graduation, I focused my job search efforts on youth prevention programming in Midcoast Maine, and was thrilled to get back to my home state when I was offered a job at Youthlinks in Rockland.  I spent four years at Youthlinks, where I worked with youth through after-school programming ranging from music to sailing, and in-school by instructing health classes and leading support groups at Oceanside High School's East campus.

I joined the CRMS staff in 2012, and am thrilled to be teaching language arts again!  I currently live in Rockland with my husband and daughter.
