I was lucky enough to experience theatre—acting in particular—as a young child, and it taught me to respect and value myself, to collaborate with others, and to explore the world outside my everyday experience. As a teaching artist, I work with students ages 3-18 to develop their unique artistic voices in a positive, empowering classroom community. 

Previous teaching experiences include work for Portland Center Stage, Shaking the Tree Theatre, Young Musicians & Artists, MESD Outdoor School, Childpeace Montessori School and Central Lutheran Church.
