I am the Art teacher at Lakeside Academy. I just moved to Chattanooga from Chicago, IL where I grew up. I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting and a Masters of Teaching in Art Education. I love spending time making my own art in my studio at home, gardening, and playing outside with my husband and daughter. I was inspired to become a teacher when one of my favorite art professors said, "Instead of a box of paints, I had you." The best part about teaching art is seeing all of the amazing things students create everyday!

You can find me at Lakeside on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays and Daisy Elementary on Mondays and Fridays.
