SUMMARY A team player with a dedicated work ethic. Classically trained in dance, piano, visual art. I’ve worked within media, marketing, and communications since 2006. I’ve worked within the arts since 1999. I pursued a graduate degree to deepen understandings of the dynamics of history, art history, and develop language around the values and motives in embodied cognition and human relationships with nature. I enjoy opportunities to serve as an educator and provide guiding support for future generations in solid foundational and critical thinking skills. My philosophy fosters freedom for individuals to develop their aptitudes and supports respectful relating through trust and communication.
