Where did you earn your bachelors and what did you study?
Bachelor’s of Science in Education Degree from Millersville University 2015. I studied specifically Secondary History Education.
What did you enjoy most about this experience?
I loved Millersville, as it is where I found out my passion, made lasting friendships, and learned to grow in moments of adversity.
What made you decide to attend the MPP program at Del Val?
I really wanted to make a difference on a grander scale than my school building, so I thought government in some form might be the answer! I wanted to stay local and found DelVal.
Has your career path inspired you to pursue further education? Or are you currently working in your desired field?
I think I would like to get another master’s after this one, although not quite sure what that will be. I am currently living out my dream as a social studies teacher!
What do you plan to do after Del Val and/or what would be your ideal job?
After Del-Val I plan to continue teaching, however, I would like to get more involved with local government however I can. The plan is once I retire from education, to become an education lobbyist to further help my kiddos.
Best part of graduate school so far:
Honestly, I love the connections you can make with your professors. My undergrad had large classes, but here at DelVal, I feel like I am seen. Also, making friends that are all in the same boat as you are, and are such good people.
What are some of your hobbies/what do you like to do for fun outside of school?
I love to sing, play guitar, journal/blogging, and hanging out with my friends and family.
Favorite vegetable to eat or grow?
Probably my new found love for asparagus!
