I believe in the transformative power of photography. It literally changed my life! I've learned to be more attentive to the world around me, to follow my curiosity, and to trust my vision, behind the lens and in life. My love of photography led me to step out of my introverted comfort zone to start a business which has brought me so much joy and fulfillment.
It's important to me to encourage others on their photography journeys. I've been teaching and mentoring others in photography since 2014, and I've loved seeing my students' creativity, talent, and confidence blossom and grow as they practice the technical and artistic skills behind taking a photograph.
I am available to teach in-person classes and workshops to schools, home-school co-ops, women's groups, community groups, and even companies as a luncheon speaker.
The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes. --Marcel Proust
