I am a graduate of Millersville University of Pennsylvania where I earned a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Art Education with a concentration in Drawing.  During my time at MU, I was able to study abroad in Pont-Aven, France- the location of an avant-garde art movement (I studied Art History in Paul Gauguin’s apartment!) through Rhode Island School of Design (RISD). I earned National Board certification (an advanced teacher credential) in 2009 and will be attempting to renew it this year.

Before joining the Bunker Hill family, I taught Introduction to Art, Ceramics, Crafts, Advanced Pottery, and Sculpture at Freedom High School for ten years; and 7th and 8th grade art at H.M. Arndt Middle School for four years. 

Besides art, I enjoy reading. My favorite book is Harry Potter, but I’ve only been to the Wizarding World 3 times so far… My favorite tv show is Supernatural. If the lights are flickering, better grab the salt! And I love to watch musicals- Hamilton is my favorite, followed closely by Les Miserable. Just don’t ask me to sing for you!
