     Family & Consumer Sciences (CTE)

    I am thrilled to share my passion for the Family & Consumer Sciences program.  From designing beautiful interiors and cooking healthy meals to developing your leadership skills and setting goals, I hope to inspire students to explore future careers in related fields.


    I began teaching at Briar Woods in 2009. Originally from NJ, I graduated with a B.A. in Psychology with a study emphasis on Education from Stockton University. For over 20 years, I have lived in Virginia with my husband and three school-aged children.  Personally, I have a passion for photography, sewing/quilting, and interior design.
