I am a graduate of Mount Vernon High School. I was inspired by my Latin teacher, Mary Jo Behrensmeyer, and am honored to be able to take over the Latin program and teach in her classroom!
I attended Xavier University, where I received a BA in Classics. During my college career, I had the opportunity to work on an archaeological survey on the island of Kea in Greece. In order to complete my degree, I wrote and published a thesis on Roman Mosaics.
I taught Latin for a year in Phoenix, Arizona. Additionally, I have worked as a Park Ambassador and Guest Service Supervisor at Cedar Point, as well as a Guest Service Supervisor at Kings Island.
