Educator, Choreographer, Director
"When educating the minds of the youth, we must not forget to educate their hearts."
I am a pre-service theatre teacher with a passion for Theatre for Young Audiences and arts education outreach programs. I believe the magic of theatre should be shared with everyone, and I strive to bring joy to the world through entertainment! I center my work on the principles of creativity, collaboration, and communication.
I am currently attending Middle Tennessee State University (expected graduation May 2023) to receive my undergraduate degree in Theatre with Teacher Licensure. In April 2022, I completed and defended my undergraduate thesis, "What Makes a Monster and What Makes a Man: Uncovering the Key to Disney Theatrical Productions's Success in Transferring Animated Films to Broadway".
Fun Fact: My "lightbulb" moment on my path to being a theatre teacher occurred while I was assistant directing/choreographing a production of Seussical Jr. The moment I saw the kids light up on stage, I knew this was my calling.
