I grew up in the North Country (what northern New York is known as) in a small town called Hermon. I graduated from Hermon-DeKalb Central School and went on to earn an associate's degree from SUNY Canton in 1992. While I was at SUNY Canton, I was an EOP student, which began my connection to this great program. I have worked at St. Lawrence since January 1994, started in HEOP six months later, and have been here ever since! I am a mother of four great kids - two daughters and two sons - and two beautiful granddaughters. I love animals and have a dog and cats. I have been married for 20+ years to my wonderful husband, David. One of my favorite things about HEOP is the connections I have made with students and alumni and I will continue to do that long after your class graduates from SLU.
