Mrs. Riley is thrilled to be in her fourth school year at Our Lady of Good Counsel!

Leading OLGC has been one of her most rewarding assignments! During her free time, Mrs. Riley enjoys spending time with her husband and children, especially on the beach in North Carolina. She is a fanatical football fan of both the Philadelphia Eagles and the Penn State Nittany Lions!!!
