I was born and raised in Montgomery County, PA - after graduating from Souderton Area High School, I attended college at the University of Maryland, College Park.
I copy edited for a military publication and wrote articles for a ticket broker while working towards two degrees - Journalism and Government & Politics, with a minor in Rhetoric & Composition. It took me an extra semester to get all of the credits, but I made it!
Since graduating in 2006, I've worked for the government (State Rep. Mike Vereb in the Perk Valley area), a non-profit (the Montgomery County Republican Committee), and I've volunteered for all kinds of organizations throughout the County.
I currently live in Whitemarsh Township, and spend my time pretty evenly between the two Patches.
I come from a huge family - six brothers and sisters, 12 nieces and nephews, most of whom live in the area - so when I'm not working, I try to spend as much time with them as I can.
