Originally from Mt. Sterling, Kentucky, I grew up around the Lexington area. I attended Eastern Kentucky University where I earned a B.A in Theatre with a Studio Art minor and special study in English. During high school I spent time as a mentor in middle and high school musical programs as well as working with local children’s programs in the summer such as Summer Playhouse/Summer Stock and the Montgomery County Migrant Program. Since then I have always had an interest in sharing arts, communication, creativity, and play with children and I believe they are important aspects to maintain in early childhood. When I am not in the classroom I am a local, freelance Stage Manager and Theatre Artist and enjoy making and seeing theatre, nature, reading, and creating art with different mediums. I spent the 2017 spring semester substituting for LFP and am very excited to join in part time during the afternoon this year!
