What event here at Central Valley CSD has made/makes a difference to you personally and in your career?
I am pretty new to the district and have not had to opportunity to attend many events to truly answer this; however, I will say that the events I have been apart of represent family, team work, and community, and because of this I have found most events at CVCSD make a difference to me personally.
Where are you involved outside of school and what do you like best about it?
Outside of the district I am a nursing instructor for the Herkimer BOCES Adult Education Program (LPN & CNA) and I think that it is a very important aspect of nursing because it is where I can show others how important nursing is to our community.
In addition to teaching at Herkimer BOCES in the evening I am a Volunteer Firefighter for the Middleville Fire department. The thing that I love most about about the department is that even though we are a small department we have the opportunity to make such a big difference in the community and that is a wonderful thing.

I have had to opportunity to work in Acute care, Long term care, and nursing education in addition to school nursing.

I grew up in Fair field, NY and now live in Middleville, NY.

I love spending time with my family so on a weekend enjoying time with my husband and children doing things we all like to do is really all I want to do.
