Science and Humanities Faculty


I am a registered dietitian and a full-time instructor at Pennsylvania College of Health Sciences. As a registered dietitian, I enjoy promoting health and teaching others how to improve the quality of their lives by practicing a healthy lifestyle. As an educator, I truly want to see my students succeed. I enjoy teaching students and helping them grow as learners to become professionals in their field. I do this through friendly communication, encouragement, being a solid presence in the classroom, creating dynamic assignments, and providing detailed constructive feedback.
