After graduating from Honesdale High School I attended Penn State University and graduated with a B.S. in Recreation and Park Management with a focus on Outdoor Recreation and Environmental Education.  Shortly after graduation I took a job with the Wayne Conservation District as their Watershed Specialist and have been here for 10 years now.  Through my employment with the Conservation District I have been able to provide education to our community, work with landowners, work with political figures and spend a wonderful amount of time out in the field enjoying nature.

On a personal note, I have been married to my husband Kris for 6 years and we have two great Labrador Retrievers, George and Jack.  We own a house on a nice little piece of land in Beach Lake, PA.
