About Me

After falling in love with physics as a high school student, I wanted to share my passion for understanding the natural world with other inquisitive minds.  I earned my B.S. in Education from Youngstown State University in 2007, where I majored in Integrated Science Education with a physics concentration.  I returned to YSU for graduate studies, earning my M.S. in Curriculum and Instruction in 2010.  

Prior to moving to the south hills, I spent ten years at Poland Seminary High School in Poland, Ohio.  There I taught two physics courses, one being a part of the College in High School program at YSU, Astronomy, Physical Science, Integrated Science, and STEM.  I am also a part time faculty member at YSU where I have taught introductory physics laboratory courses.  After leaving the Youngstown area, I spent time as a Subject Matter Expert creating digital content for middle and high schools.
