||I was lucky enough to grow up in Northern Michigan playing in the forest, swimming in lakes and drawing, drawing, drawing! I went to the College for Creative Studies in Detroit, MI where I majored in Crafts (with a focus on ceramics) and Art Education. After college I moved to Portland, Oregon(yes it rains a lot) where I lived for 4 years teaching at a variety of schools and am proud to say that I have taught art K-12.
I moved to Utah in 2011 and am excited to begin my fifth year here at Monticello! I love everything about teaching art here- especially the kids! I am the SBO adviser for grades 4-9.
I love to learn about new things and travel. Some of my favorite places I have been are Belize, Alaska, Hawaii, Italy, France and southern Utah. I love skiing and crochet and a always looking for a new hobby or project.
