I was born and raised in rural Wisconsin. I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Art Education in 1999 from Viterbo University. I earned my Master’s Degree in Education/Professional Development through the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse in 2005.
Right out of college, I was fortunate enough to get a teaching position at West Salem High School. I have been working with high school artists since 2000.
Working with high school students is an exciting and fulfilling part of my life. I am consistently grateful to be around artists who develop new ideas and techniques. It is their enthusiasm and dedication to their art that inspires me on a daily basis.
Recently, I have been given the opportunity to teach some art education courses at Viterbo. I am thankful to be a part of the college community that shaped my beliefs in art education. I am also grateful to have a supportive school district who is committed to the creative endeavors of its students. My colleagues in the West Salem Art Department are amazing people who are supportive of any adventure we embark on in the high school art world.
When I am not teaching, I can be found in my garage studio working on my own art, or out playing music in and around the La Crosse area.

I have been teaching art for over 20 years, publically and privately. I am currently teaching art at Pulaski High School in Milwaukee as well as teaching at UWM for their “Saturday Academy” classes and “College for Kids”. I hold several roles here at Pulaski high school. I am the department chair, Infinite campus liaison as well as serving on the schools learning team and think tank. I hold a BFA in Painting and Drawing, Teacher Certification in Art Education, UW-Milwaukee; MA in Visual Arts, Cardinal Stritch University and I just received my certificate for administration/supervision in May of 2015 from National Louis University.
I enjoy working with and teaching young people new and creative ways to make art. It takes a strong mind and an expressive demeanor to teach the urban youth of today. I help these students break away from the lives that they lead outside of school by exposing them to the world of creativity and beauty. My life is art and I teach what I love, art!
