“It takes a big heart to teach little minds!” Working with children has always been a passion of mine. Exactly the reason why I graduated with a Bachelor’s of Arts in Education from Rider University.  Many years later I enjoy what I do as much as when I first started! I have been with the Palisades family since 1999 both as a Head teacher in the school and as a Head Counselor in the Summer Camp.  Along with being a teacher, I am a wife, and a Mom of two fantastic boys, both of whom are Palisades’ alumni. In my free time, I enjoy competing in Triathlons.
