This is my ninth year teaching at Red Hook High School
and 14th year as a science teacher. Before entering the 
teaching profession, I worked as a certified meteorologist. 
I continue to work as a private forecaster and forensic meteorologist in Dutchess County. 
In addition to teaching and weather, my interests include hiking, running, kayaking, biking, reading, 

enjoying the outdoors, participating in leadership activities and spending time with friends, family and pets!
