A passion for the arts has been the driving force of my life since childhood. Whether it was through movement, music, writing or art… I’ve always had to be creative. I left the coast of NC as a young adult to study dance in California and after one more move to the Pacific Northwest, I eventually settled in the lovely mountains of WNC to raise a family. We were blessed that our daughter got into TMCS for Kindergarten and then our son a year later. TMCS became a second home for me as a volunteer serving on the school board and as a member of the PTC. During those years I was the owner and operator of Hendersonville Fine Arts Academy. My next role at TMCS was as a teaching assistant and then when the former Art teacher retired into this role which I would describe as my “dream job”.
