Background Information

​I grew up attending public school in Virginia. I have a B.A. in Studio Art/Art History from Denison University and a Master’s in Education from DePaul University. In 2005 I earned and currently hold my National Board Professional Teaching Certificate for Middle Childhood Generalists. I have taught in Chicago, IL and Tampa, FL, and currently live in Madison, WI.

Over the past twenty years, I have successfully taught elementary through college level courses in both public and private schools using rigorous arts integrated curriculum. I have witnessed the positive academic, social, and emotional impact this work has had on students and families and on my professional life. I have developed Creative Across the Curriculum, LLC in order teach others how to design high quality arts integrated curriculum to make a similar impact.​​   

I look forward to working with you on your curriculum needs!
