“I am extremely happy to be starting my 15th year of teaching back with Academy Theatre. I graduated from Southern Oregon University, with an emphasis in Technical Theatre. I truly believe that college is the beginning of learning, not the ending, and have been constantly taking courses since obtaining my Masters, and looking at starting a second one soon.
Although I loved working in the industry, I found “my calling” when I helped a friend with an inner-city summer program, where I taught theatre to the teenagers enrolled. Since that summer, I have taught many different theatre disciplines, both in technical theatre and acting, to all age levels. Additionally, I spent three years here at LVA as a Theatre Manager and in charge of ticketing and box office for the theatre department. I am also a member of Educational Theatre Association and have been a proud Thespian director to many CCSD schools.
I am looking forward this year to my current courses of Fashion and Makeup as they are allowing me to learn everyday!”
