Hello! I began my professional work life as a secondary English teacher in northwest Pennsylvania. After 6 years, the snowy weather and general curiosity about other careers led me back home to southwest PA, where I worked at temporary office jobs until I was hired as an editor/proofreader with a well-respected Pittsburgh communications firm. There I met my husband, we married, and I left the work world for several years to be a full-time mom.

When I returned to work, I helped manage a non-profit tutoring center and did some freelance proofreading from home; most recently, I've worked as a library assistant in our local public library. There, I reconnected with books and words (my first loves!)--and was also reminded through various library clubs and outreach programs how much I enjoy explaining and simplifying processes for people of all ages.

I truly believe that all my different work experiences have made me an even more effective instructor. Here I am, ready for fresh educational challenges and relationships. I am excited for this opportunity to connect with new people through Varsity Tutors!
