Biography

Along with teaching at BCCC and other area colleges,(Temple, Holy Family, Rider, TCNJ, Holy Family, etc.) I have also been practicing as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker for the past 31yrs. I have worked in many different settings, from schools to hospitals to family services centers. I provide direct therapy to individuals of all ages, as well as couples and families. I also facilitate various types of support groups and educational groups. I have taught at BCCC for the past 23 years. I live in Bucks county with my husband and we have seven children and two dogs.

Shared Resources

I truly enjoy the subjects I teach. Even after almost 35 years of studying Sociology I always look forward to introducing it to my students and opening their eyes to this fascinating subject. Sociology plays a large role in helping us to understand the world around us. And as a social worker - I am able to teach social work utilizing my 31 years of experience. I try to avoid straight lecture and encourage my students to internalize the ideas and theories of these subjects. Providing this new "lens" via discussions, audio visuals and exercises helps students learn more effectively and be able to share their experiences and learning.
