A little bit about me...

I am so excited to start my second at Cawley Middle School! I went to Plymouth State University to earn my degree in Health and Physical Education as well as to play Lacrosse. I am currently earning my Graduate Degree at Southern New Hampshire University in Public Health.

I really enjoy traveling and have been to Ireland, England, Germany, and Greece! This year I will be exploring Maryland, Wyoming and Canada! I also enjoy swimming, riding horses, hiking, going for runs with my dog and reading, this summer I was even able to try surfing for the first time! Health has been a passion of mine every since I was in Middle School and had my first Health Education class. I find it so important to incorporate all the components of wellness into my everyday life and look forward to sharing that with you!!

I know we are going to have a great year!

"Wellness is not a 'medical fix' but a way of living - a lifestyle sensitive and responsive to all the dimensions of body, mind, and spirit, an approach to life we each design to achieve our highest potential for well-being now and forever." ~Greg Anderson
