I am 34 years old and a 2008 graduate of Penn State University with a bachelor’s degree in Business. working towards getting a master’s Degree in education from Wilkes University with an expected graduation date of May 2019 and am exploring pursuing further educational pathways. I worked in a school district as a bus driver, custodian, summer maintenance, and security officer for over 8 years combined in those various roles. I also have experience dealing with legal claims against and for insurance companies and acted as a safety manager for a para-transit organization as well. I have worked my way from the bottom to being a Business Manager and Board Secretary and I am proud of my strong work ethic. A lifelong resident of Hazleton, PA, I have witnessed the changing culture in our schools first hand, and have the experience and knowledge needed to apply that to the School Board Secretaries forum steering committee.
