I have been teaching math at GSC since 1998 when it was called College for Lifelong Learning. I enjoy working with adult students helping them to build confidence in the study and understanding of mathematics. In 2005 I began working as an Administrative Assistant at the GSC offices in Portsmouth and Rochester, NH. It is great having that contact with students outside of the classroom, helping them through their educational journey from a different perspective.
In September 2009, I added another hat to my collection at Granite State College when I accepted the position of Academic Advisor for students at the Portsmouth site. In this additional role at the college, I continue to guide students through the pursuit of a college education. I love it! This is the most rewarding job I have ever had, watching dreams come true.
I grew up in New Hampshire and studied Biology and Math at the University of New Hampshire. I then earned a Masters of Education at Tufts University. Currently, I live in Dover, NH with my husband and however many of my three adult children are at home at any given time. When not working, I enjoy walking with the dog, reading, and attempting to grow a flower garden. It is important to learn new things so my latest adventure is learning to ride and drive my daughter's Saddlebred horse. I have discovered muscles that I did not know existed but it is a blast!
