This is my 9th year teaching art, my 6th year in Conroe ISD and, my first year here at York! I love art of all types and media. In my free time my husband and I run a Photography business, I create all kinds of arts and crafts, and love to play sports like volleyball and softball. I like to spend time outdoors and on the lake. My favorite thing to do in the summer is travel. I have studied abroad in Scotland, England, France, and Italy. These experiences have given me many great things to share in the classroom.
