I am "peacock" proud to be part of Desoto ISD and
the Northside Business & Law Academy roster of distinguished educators!

All About Me...

 - Glassell School of Art Scholarship Recipient
 - Bachelor's of Fine Arts/Texas Woman's University
- Fine Arts Educator Since 2010
- Studied Dance, Music, and Acting
- Performed in regional music theater productions
- Currently teaching dance at KD Studio College in Dallas, TX

My mother instilled a love of the arts in me so quite naturally, I grew up as the consummate entertainer of the family (I miss our family "talent" shows)!  I don't remember a time where I wasn't either dancing, drawing, or being somewhere on the stage. Because of this, and my own academic struggles as a child, I feel that through the arts, I was able to find my inner voice and reach my full potential! 

I also love entertaining, interior design, animals, family time, crafting, 
(the staff at Micheals know me by name!), travel, sight-seeing, playing piano, reading,
a bowl of popcorn and a good ol' movie from Redbox!
