About

I’m a graduate of Northeastern’s College of Business. I earned a Master’s degree in Education and the equivalent of another Master’s in Business Communication on line. I have been facilitating Northeastern online courses since 2000.

Working and learning on line is so convenient. I feel fortunate to have been able to continue my teaching career at Northeastern in spite of my move from Burlington, Massachusetts to Madeira Beach, Florida, which is in the Tampa Bay/St. Petersburg area.

Background

When I lived in Burlington (Massachusetts), I was a computer consultant and owned my own business. We handled almost any kind of business writing for the computer industry. It was challenging and exciting work. In one year, for example, I wrote technical manuals, a speech for a computer company vice president, online help files, proposals, a brochure, and I developed a technical course. I enjoyed my work so much that I decided I wanted to be a networking and telecommunications software engineer. I took many courses at Northeastern and burned out.

Now that I live in Florida, I work for HSN (the Home Shopping Network) as a product information writer. Writing is my passion. I can’t think of living a day without it.

My Life Outside Work

When I’m not working, I like to be outside with my husband, Manny, and the latest addition to our family, Buddy, who is a Jack Russell/rat terrier mix. There are many parks, and we enjoy them all. We belong to the Sons of Italy and our local American Legion where we volunteer our time.

We continue to be New England Patriots fans and look forward watching the game every week. Go Pats!

I enjoy step aerobics. I am also a Jazzercise fanatic, and I’m learning Tai Chi and yoga.

Another one of my passions is teaching. I thoroughly enjoy facilitating classes at Northeastern.

Goals for Every Class

My goal for every class is to create a supportive learning environment where we can learn from each other. The College of Professional Studies continues to attract a wide variety of talented individuals, and I am constantly impressed with the full, rich experience that each student brings to my class. I encourage and enjoy the exchange of information.
