The future belongs to those that believe in the value of their dreams

-Eleanor Roosevelt

I took the long way to find my true passion.  My journey from photography, to social work, to interior design, has shaped who I am as a person and a teacher.  I am passionate about design and how powerful the design process can be to help change how we live.  I love watching and guiding the students on their path to becoming inspired, innovative designers with an eye towards making the world a better place to live.  I am honored to be able to provide students with design opportunities both large and small.  They get to design everything from light fixtures, to furniture, to homes, to offices, to a women’s maker studio in Kenya! I believe that an education is a powerful toolbox that can open up many doors, but passion, motivation, and perseverance are the tools to get you to where you need to be.  I am almost there.
