Prior to my position as the director of Business and Finance, I was a business teacher and assistant principal at Union-Endicott High School in the Southern Tier. I chose to join the leadership team at Geneva City School District because of the innovative spirit and student-centered focus.
My education includes: a B.S. Management\Marketing, SUNY Geneseo; an M.S. Adult Education, Buffalo State College; Vocational Teaching Certification, SUNY Oswego; an Educational Leadership Certificate of Advanced Studies for School Building Leader and School District Leader, Binghamton University; and an Educational Leadership Certificate of Advanced Studies for School Business Leader, The College of Saint Rose.
In my current position, my priority is to uphold my fiduciary responsibility to the community, taxpayers, students and staff, in utilizing the district’s resources to support student success and enrichment.
