I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay area. I am the youngest of three girls, and have always loved art and interior design. I was fortunate enough to pursue both art and ID as a career, but feel even more lucky that I am using my BA in Education to teach what I love. I am a single mom with a beautiful, smart and fun 11 year old daughter, who also attends LCS. We love to travel together, and explore art.
