I am the Art and STEAM teacher at Stone Valley Community Charter School in McAlevys Fort, PA. I love working with students and teachers to help bring their ideas to life. On weekends I enjoy painting faces at art festivals, birthday parties, and Penn State sporting events. For the last 12 years, I have looked for to participating in the Italian Street Painting Festival during the Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts each year.


I have a BFA in Fine Art Photography with a minor in Art History from Rochester Institute of Technology and an MS in Art Education from Penn State. I taught summer art camps for seven years at Penn State's Center for Arts and Crafts and worked for the YMCA's before and after school program for three years. I have taught elementary art in both Pennsylvania and Virginia.


In addition to teaching, I continue to persue freelance work ranging from food and wedding photography, to website design and other graphic design projects.
