What are your hobbies? How do you occupy your time to plan for the future?
I love to travel, take dance classes, and spend time with my friends and family. I am a special education teacher in Elmwood Park, NJ, where I teach children with autism and other disabilities. I am also a graduate student working toward my Master’s degree as a Learning Disabilities Teacher Consultant.
Have you ever worked for a charity? Who/what would you like to volunteer for?
I am proud to be a contributing member of “Autism Speaks.” I walk to raise money for this foundation every year. I have also taught dance classes at Gilda’s Club, which is a group dedicated to supporting children affected by cancer.
What is it about New Jersey that you love?
I think we have it all.. the beaches, the small town feel, and the best hockey team in the NHL!
I’m proud to be a Devil’s Dancer because…
The entire experience is indescribable. I get to do what I love with some of the greatest girls I have ever met.
Three fun facts about yourself:
1. I was a four year member of the 13x National Championship Dance Team, Towson University.
2. I drive a stick shift car.. in 6 inch heels!
I was a dancer in a music video that featured Mobb Deep.
What was the greatest moment of your life thus far aside from becoming a Devils Dancer?
The greatest moment in my life would have to be when I finished setting up my very first classroom. I wanted to be a teacher since I was 7 years old, and I couldn’t believe it was really happening!
