I am from West Chester, PA, and went through West Chester Area School District. I attended Millersville University where I played Lacrosse and majored in Art. I went to further schooling for Computer Desktop and Publishing and worked as a Graphic Designer for 3 years. My passion for teaching Art was not realized until after I worked one summer as a camp counselor where I was responsible for 15 eight year olds. I had so much fun taking the kids around to their different activities and getting to know them. I went back to college to earn my certification for teaching art and the rest is history. I still love to take art classes in order to learn and grow as a artist and as an educator. My favorite things to do outside of my job are to: paint dog portraits, play tennis, and spend time with my family. My husband and I have two daughters, two dogs, and a bunny! We love watching movies together and going to the beach!
