Has 30+ years of corporate marketing and advertising industry experience which has led her to opening the doors of Children’s Art Classes Richmond.
As the owner of CAC Richmond, she wants to provide a strong arts foundation to all students, regardless of ability. A foundation that can have a significant multiplier effect by raising critical thinking and competency skills, improving performance in other areas of study and offering a social community for children to explore and discover in ways that only art can facilitate.
As a parent, she has seen the desire to enroll children in STEM and sports and feels that there should also be a focus on providing a creative outlet through Art.
Her passion for art education is born out of continuing the legacy of her husband, who was a teacher in Chesterfield County at Thomas Dale HS, the specialty center for the arts. He taught high school Math but saw the incredible impact on a student’s performance when they were also enrolled in art or performing arts programs.
