I have been teaching history at JCC since 2004. Nineteenth-century women’s history is a particular passion of mine, along with the broader history of American social reform. I also love learning about the history that surrounds us in Western New York.

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.

 I joined JCC as a criminal justice instructor in 2013. I have always been drawn to opportunities to learn and share knowledge with others. Upon earning my M.A. specializing in terrorism studies and WMD nonproliferation, I applied my passion for these subjects as an employee of the U.S. Department of Defense. It gives me great pleasure to be back at my first alma mater and in a position to share my numerous academic interests with future criminal justice professionals.
