I grew up here in the North Country (what Northern NY is known as) in a small town called Hermon. I graduated from Hermon-DeKalb Central School and went on to earn Associates 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 University since January 1994 and started in HEOP six months later and have been here ever since ~ 20+ years later! 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.
