Where did I go to school?
I earned my Bachelor of Science in Earth and Space Science with Teaching and my Master of Education in Educational Psychology at Temple University in Philadelphia, PA.
Why Penn College?
Penn College has excellent hands-on education with state-of-the-art lab spaces for every major. Skilled technical careers get a bit of a bad reputation, and they shouldn’t! It is my mission to help students find out about the amazing opportunities and programs we offer—and just how lucrative and in-demand these careers are—so they can make the right choice for their future. Not to mention, everyone on campus is so kind and accessible!
I love taking winter trips to Coudersport, PA to see the dark skies at Cherry Springs State Park, which is a Dark Skies Park designated by the International Dark-Sky Association. I usually plan the trip to line up with the Geminids meteor shower in December.
Favorite Place in Williamsport
Boom City Brewing Company has great food, and the Susquehanna River Walk is great to get outside without going for a hike. For an all-out hike, I recommend trying out some of the Loyalsock Trail.
I love hiking and camping, which there is a ton of around here!
Favorite Birthday Treat
I love ice cream cake!
