About Me

11701143_10207240529351006_6015778711505873236_n (1)I joined Ohio State full time in Autumn 2010 after working as a newspaper editor and reporter in both Philadelphia and the Napa Valley of California, and  served as press secretary for Pennsylvania Congressman Jon D. Fox. I worked also in publicity for both the Philadelphia 76ers basketball team and Domain Chandon Winery.

I grew up in Capitola, Calif., and I earned a bachelor’s degree in Political Science from Temple University and a master’s degree in Communication (with a focus on journalism) from The Ohio State University. I am also pursuing a doctorate in global education.

Technology in education is a big focus of mine, and I travel across the country and Ethiopia to teach educators how to teach with technology and create distance education opportunities. In 2015 I was named an Apple Distinguished Educator.

Now I live in Columbus with my husband, Brian, and our son, Danny, a student at Bishop Watterson High School, who is a passionate (and skilled!) hockey and tennis player.

In my free time I work for the AP as a freelance writer, covering the Columbus Blue Jackets and horse racing.
