I have been fortunate in my career to work in all levels of social work practice, from individual and family interventions to community groups and state-level policy initiatives. I have worked in New York and Kentucky, as well as overseas as a Peace Corps volunteer in Russia and Latvia. It continues to be greatly rewarding to share my experiences and passion for social work with my students in the classroom. In the policy arena I am particularly passionate about poverty issues and programs and family violence.

The Fall 2013 semester marked my first semester as a full-time instructor at JCC, and I'm delighted to be here! I've served as an adjunct instructor on the Cattaraugus County campus, and worked full time in the technology consulting field. I've had the opportunity to work with businesses of all sizes, in a variety of industries. My favorite business partners have always been start-ups and family run businesses. I believe that entrepreneurs are vital to our local and national economy, and that the education and support of our entrepreneurs can have a profound impact on all of our lives.
