A native Californian, wife, mother of six daughters and one grandson, who enjoys reading, the ocean, hiking, and all things art! My professional artist website can be found here.
This is my 3rd year here at New West and I am looking forward to collaborating with my students. Previously employed with LAUSD teaching younger students and volunteered as visual art coordinator in elementary and secondary schools for twenty years. In 2023, I earned my summa cum laude Master of Art in Education and 2018 summa cum laude Bachelor in Fine Arts with an emphasis in sculpture and painting.
I hope to help make the world a better place through art and the connection with our community. I feel strongly that through art we gain a visual voice addressing cognitive, emotional, physical, and social growth.
