Relationship to the Arts: While growing up, I practiced ballet for eight years, three of which were en pointe. I also studied drawing and painting at The Baum School of Art in Allentown, Pa. During my undergraduate studies, I continued to paint while interning at The Allentown Art Museum, The Fabric Workshop and Museum, and The Historical Society of Pennsylvania. Currently I am working on various projects through the UArts ceramics department. In addition to creating art, I also enjoy attending local theatre productions, jazz concerts, and good old rock and roll shows.
Hobbies / Interests: I enjoy jogging, exploring museums, reading nonfiction, discovering new restaurants, hiking, vineyard hopping, and being outside. I love to travel and snorkel!
Education / Background: I have a bachelor’s degree in art history (minor in visual anthropology) from Temple University, and a master’s degree in arts administration from Drexel University. During undergrad, I spent semesters abroad in Paris at the Sorbonne Université and later in Rome. While at Drexel, I researched partnerships between educational and cultural nonprofits and wrote my thesis on how to foster social inclusion through collaborations.
Additional Information: My most feared ninja skills include the Five-Point Palm Exploding Heart Technique and any move with my coveted Hattori Hanzo katana.
