"I love watching students grow a passion and appreciation of an art form. Seeing students develop body awareness, and succeed in skills or tasks they have never engaged in is a beautiful experience. This will be my 6th year at West, and I can't wait to work with all of my students! I am a wife of 13 years, have a 7 year old son named, Ayden, a 2 year old Yorkie Poo named "Reece Cup", and a puppy Boston Terrier named "Millie Vanillie".
