About Colleen

About Colleen
I am a psychology major, a teaching assistant and tutor with over ten years experience. I am also a mom to three teenagers, two daughters ages 17 and 13 and one 15-year old son, who is on the Autism spectrum. We also share our home with our dog Pippi, our cat Princess, and three free-roaming rabbits, Bella, Coco and Bean. I enjoy spending time with family, travel, trying new restaurants and going to rock concerts! My hobbies are genealogy, gardening, reading and cooking.
