I’ve always loved to sew and create and had an opportunity to attend grad school as an older non traditional student, at first there was some trepidation since I had never done theatre, but I loved every minute of grad school. The whole process from reading the play, getting to know the characters and dressing them. Four years ago I was led to North Greenville to teach, and I now know it was God that brought me here to share my love of Theatre as well as his love.
Favorite course to teach:
My favorite course to teach is Costume Design and construction. I love to see the students realize they have the ability to make garments and help bring a production to life.
