  I did my undergraduate B.A. at Evangel University, a small private school in Springfield, MO.  I absolutely adored college, and going away to college was definitely one of the most defining experiences of my life! 

My Masters degree is from La Universidad de Turabo de Puerto Rico (in conjunction with Penn State).      


I have had the privilege of living and teaching in several places, which has given me a variety of life adventures and has taught me that there are as many different ways to approach education as there are ways to approach life.  Experiencing different cultures and types of people has enriched me as a person in ways that I never expected.

I started teaching in 1993, and I've been at Donegal since 2005.
