Warren County, PA native and current resident, I graduated from Panama Central School in 2001 and received a BFA in Ceramics with teaching certification from Edinboro University in 2006. After graduation, I joined the Warren County School District and have been teaching K-12 Art ever since.  I’ve been at Beaty Warren Middle School for the past 8 years.

Throughout my career I’ve had many roles within my district and community. I have written curriculum, coached volleyball, been the set director for all county musicals, hosted paint night fundraisers, to name a few, all while tending bar and selling personal art to make ends meet.  I have aspirations of escaping with my dog in an RV, travelling the country, and making art every day of my journey. Any day with art is a good day.
