Penn Stater since: 
1974 – I earned my B.S in Education in 1978 and my Masters in Student Affairs in 2013!
“Everyone is gifted; they simply open their presents at different times and places.” (Unknown author) I believe in discovering and celebrating the talents that all individuals have. It is a wonderful opportunity to help students as they explore their interests and abilities while unpacking their gifts.

My favorite place I have traveled is Rome, Italy. What is not to love about Rome? The food, the art, the history. Che bella! It is the eternal city with art and architecture second to none.

My Bucket List consists of traveling to many places. In the near future I hope to visit Normandy, France and I also have a strong desire to see many sites in South America with Machu Picchu at the top of the list.

I am afraid of the dark. I have been ever since I was little. I still sleep with a light on if I am home alone.

I like to collect recipes and sometimes I even attempt to use them.

In my spare time, I love watching movies, TV dramas and the Voice! I am also trying to be better about exercising several days a week though to make up for all the couch time.

When it comes to sports, I really enjoy watching almost all of them (except golf!). My favorite teams are the Nittany Lions, and I have been obsessed with Pittsburgh Pirates baseball since I was a little girl.

If I could only listen to one band the rest of my life it would be Bob Marley. I love reggae, socca and Latin music.

My favorite things to eat are most pasta dishes with meatballs and Greek salads with grilled chicken and lots of pepperoncini.

I am most proud of raising two wonderful sons who are contributing to society by serving in the Coast Guard and teaching physical education and nutrition to children in Florida.
