I am excited for the upcoming year as part the St. Christopher School family. I was born and raised in Nashua, New Hampshire. I graduated from Keene State College with a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and English.

I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. In my spare time I like to cook, shop, and make crafts.
