I came to the Great Valley family 12 years ago from Erie PA, where I taught FACS for 10 years. My husband wanted to be closer to his extended family and we thought the Philadelphia area would be a great next adventure! My education includes a B.S. from The Ohio State University, a M.S. from the University of Minnesota, and certificates in FACS and Gifted Education from Mercyhurst and Neumann Universities. I have a small clothing design studio called Stitch Design School and Sewing Studio and like to spend my spare time making things.
