About Me

I danced professionally in Seattle, Washington for 20 years before moving to the Central Coast.  I began teaching in 1985, working as an Artist-in-Residence for the Washington State Arts Commission.  I then taught in several private high schools, at Cornish College of the Arts and for Pacific Northwest Ballet.  I receive a Master of Fine Arts from the University of Washington in 1993.  I performed and taught in Scotland, Japan and mainland China.  I got my teaching credential in 1997 and have been a full-time public school teacher since then.  I helped found the Fine Arts Academy in Atascadero in 2000.
