“All the arts we practice are apprenticeship. The big art is our life.” M.C. Richards
I believe living is a 'lively art,' and by allowing ourselves to play, create and dream we can discover a more authentic way of relating to the world. Since 2011 I have worked at residential treatment centers in Utah, designing and leading creative classes involving art therapy, family laboratory activities and recreational therapy at centers such as House of Hope and Wasatch Mental Health.
I received my BA degree in English with an emphasis on Creative Writing and a minor in Psychology at Brigham Young University. While at BYU, I had the opportunity to take classes from Utah Poet Laureate Lance Larsen and nationally recognized poet Kimberly Johnson. Currently, I am a Master of Social Work (MSW) student at the University of Utah. I have a background in music, theater, and dance. My poetry, short-fiction and articles have been published in various magazines and newspapers. I have also studied Waldorf Education, a holistic/arts-oriented pedagogy, in Germany, Chicago and Colorado.
I am passionate about helping and inspiring others and effecting change in the community at large. I see the inherent strengths in others and value the the path of each individual to become who they truly are in their lives and relationships.
