I am also an assistant track and field coach and have chaperoned students in trips abroad to Europe.

In my spare time...
I love to travel, read, visit museums, run, do yoga, watch the Steelers, hike, go to concerts, explore ethnic food, play around with my camera, garden, and meet interesting people. My goal in life is to set foot on every continent before I leave this world. I am currently up to 29 countries.
