Personal History
I was born and raised in central Pennsylvania.  I've been an Adult Learner for most of my life and that experience led me to pursue a Master's degree in Training and Development.  I feel strongly that adult and continuing education will play a major role in the future as workforce skills and technology rapidly evolve.
