Degrees and Certifications:
I'm a native of Wisconsin and have lived in Florida for over a decade. I have a bachelor's degree in Educational Studies from University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Prior to becoming an educator, I worked in child welfare and ran my own business selling handmade goods.
I highly value the arts and greatly appreciate all of the opportunities that MSA has to offer. I feel that my class provides valuable skills that everyone needs to be successful in their chosen career. Pursuing a career in the arts requires proficiency on the business side, and my goal is to help students gain those skills.
In my free time, I enjoy sewing and machine embroidery. Rarely a day goes by that I do not make something. I have been sewing for over 20 years and have made pretty much everything that can be made with fabric. I recently won ribbons for my work at the Manatee County Fair, and I was accepted to a Master's program in costume design many years ago (I did not attend due to familial obligations, but it's nice to have my skills recognized!).
I live with my husband and 3 teenage daughters, two of whom attend MSA. We share our home with 6 cats (yes, 6!).
