I joined Independence Academy the beginning of November 2020. I started teaching in 2015. I love when students get to learn by trial and error - trying new things, incorporating things already learned, and ending up with something new!

I have always had a love of science and art equally. I love when the two get together - amazing things can happen!
I have experience in film including editing and visual effects. In the past, I have worked for one of the local news stations and have done various digital art projects for a wide array of clients including motion graphics, logo and advertisement design.
In my free time, I love reading, video games, movies, crafting, Lego... LOTS of things. I love Disney movies and will never get too old for a good animated film or show! My favorite genre is sci-fi & fantasy. I am a member of the local Justice League of Hope and love to swim in my mermaid tails! I have 2 bengal kitties and enjoy birdwatching! I also enjoy SCUBA diving and the ocean!
