Having a background in Graphic Design, Art and Photography and utilizing my skills here at the department of Creative and Performing Arts is my favorite part of this position. I like having a challenge and starting new projects that get the community, students and parents engaged in the Arts. I believe that Art Education has a significant effect on the academic and social success of students. It provides a constructive outlet and enhances the process of learning.  

I have been happily married to my husband for 22 years and my son recently graduated from Red Mountain High School, class of 2020 and is currently attending ASU. We also have a rescue dog named, Ripley Newt, after one of our favorite female science fiction movie characters . 

We moved to Arizona in June 2016 from Missouri, where the three of us were born and raised. We enjoy Arizona but our family loves to travel to new places. We also enjoy watching movies, trying new cultural cuisines and spending time together in nature. I enjoy art related activities, pretty much anything relating to photography, drawing, clay, jewelry making etc. My favorite pastime would be sitting on a beach somewhere listening to the waves crashing and smelling the fresh air with my toes in the sand.
