Has 30+ years of corporate marketing and advertising industry experience which has led her to opening the doors of Children’s Art Classes.
As the owner of CAC, she wants to provide a strong arts foundation to all students, regardless of ability. A foundation that can have a significant multiplier effect by raising critical thinking and competency skills, improving performance in other areas of study and offering a social community for children to explore and discover in ways that only art can facilitate.
As a parent, she has seen the desire to enroll children in STEM and sports and feels that there should also be a focus on providing a creative outlet through Art.
Her passion for art education is born out of continuing the legacy of her husband, who was a teacher in Chesterfield County at Thomas Dale HS, the specialty center for the arts.
She taught high school Math but saw the incredible impact on a student’s performance when they were also enrolled in art or performing arts programs.
