About Me

In my most recent occupation, I worked with kindergarten through 8th graders at a before and after school program. In which, I would supervise children while continuing their education through play and scholastic resources. I spent most of my time with the kindergarteners though second graders. I absolutely enjoy working with children. Having received my Bachelor’s degrees in both Theatre Performance and Drama for Youth at the University of Northern Iowa, I’ve learned how to use the arts as a way to educate, excite, and allow children to play and explore their world. I’ve always thought that being able to teach and interact with children in an open and safe environment, using the arts was the best way to introduce them to endless creative possibilities. Children are truly free of inhibitions and have the best imaginations. They are a blank canvas waiting to be colored in with fun, joy, and colorful experiences.

Originally from Iowa, I moved here to pursue acting and further myself as a theatre-teaching artist, also to learn and grow as a person. I am always open to learning new things and having new experiences. I enjoy, reading and discovering new plays, going to the theatre, taking voice and dance lesson, yoga, and over all trying to find new and exciting ways to learn, create, and share creativity.
