A little bit about me...

I am so excited to begin my first year at Cawley Middle School! I have worked as a Health Educator for 3 years at my previous 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 summer I was able to experience some news States as well, including Alabama and Tennessee. I also enjoy swimming, hiking, going for runs with my dog and reading. 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!

Quote of the Week

"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
