I believe 

that learning is the most fun a person can have, and that it can happen at any age. I bring this enthusiasm and love for lifelong learning to every classroom, theatre camp, and workshop circle I enter. For me, play and education are connected, which is why I believe so strongly in theatre as a learning medium.

 

It is my goal to introduce children to a love of language, communicating, and constructive play. I work to build positive, supportive group environments through ensemble work and shared laughter. I encourage and model risk-taking, 100% effort, and playing with abandon!

 

As an educator, leader, and theatre artist, I strive to do good work, share stories, and help kids to grow in confidence and community spirit.
