Courses Taught

  • SOCI110:


I am a 22 year resident of the Newtown area and also work as a realtor with Coldwell Banker Hearthside. I am a member of Newtown Rotary Club. Beyond the classroom I enjoy traveling, gardening, Pilates and cooking.

Shared Resources

I believe that sociology speaks to the issues each of us faces in our daily lives. If I can give my students the ability to understand the social issues and social problems that confront us in the 21st century, I believe they will then be equipped with the tools they need to become better citizens of our increasingly global community.

Through Rotary and my real estate business I have developed a large group of contacts and resource people from all walks of professional life in Lower Bucks County. Networking is a large part of my business and I can connect people to one another based on their interests and needs.
