She attended Villa Maria College as an early childhood education major winning the Villa Maria Faculty Scholarship in January 1991. She transferred to Buffalo State College in 1992 and graduated with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary and Exceptional education. She was a substitute teacher in the Clarence School District before obtaining the position here at the Co-Op.

Her family lives here in Clarence.   She has three beautiful children and eight fabulous grandchildren who also live in the town of Clarence.
