LFP Elective Teacher - Art
I moved to Los Angeles from Pittsburgh, PA three years ago with my husband. We have a corgi named Lucy and a bearded dragon named Giles. I am obsessed with Disney, and am usually at Disneyland twice a month! My favorite princess is Ariel. I also love Broadway, NYC, painting, drawing, sewing, and crafting. I make handpainted shoes in my spare time. I am very outgoing, optimistic, and energetic!
