I currently live in Chester with my husband Shaun, and our two boys, Gunner and Max. I hold a Bachelors Degree in Psychology and Communications from Muhlenberg College, a Masters in Special Education from The College of St. Elizabeth's and I am currently enrolled at Fairleigh Dickinson University in my second Master's Degree Program in Educational Leadership. I have been a member of Noe since I was born and worked my way through our badge system, all the way up to Golden Dolphin. This is going to be my 22nd year working at Noe. I started off lifeguarding, working in the office and teaching swim lessons, then moved to Head of Office, Program Director and Tester. Currently I am a Big Wheels Camp Programmer. I look forward to another summer of fun and excitement at Noe Pond.
