Graduating from University South Carolina in 1981, with a Bachelor of Science, Art Education, Special Interest in Glassblowing. I worked as a glassblower from 1986-2007. I worked in food service from 2007-2013, focusing on vegetarian, organic, and non-GMO meals. Substitute teacher from 2013-2018, mainly with special needs and preschool age children.

Why did I choose Georgetown Community School?

"The stars aligned." Moving from South Carolina, to Colorado, back to South Carolina, I was happy to have the opportunity to get back to Colorado. Thank you GCS, I believe it was meant to be.

If the Students could learn one thing, what would it be?

If students could learn one thing from me, I believe it would be each of you are unique and therefore unique gifts. Sometimes it may take a while, but you will find them.

When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up, and why?

When I was a child, I wanted to be an artist. An artist has independence. An artist knows color. I also wanted to be a teacher, they also teach independence and color.
