Prior to arriving at Southeast, I taught at the following institutions: The Alabama School of Mathematics and Science, University of South Alabama and Texas Woman’s University. I've freelance designed and supervised shops in both costumes and scenery. I've worked with such theatres as Fort Worth Shakespeare in the Park, Oklahoma Shakespearean Festival, Orlando Shakespeare Festival, Hip Pocket Theatre, Missouri Summer Repertory Theatre,and New Orleans' Le Petit Vieux Carre.
I am an alumnus of Southeast Missouri State University majoring in art and theatre. After completing my bachelor’s degree, I received a Master of Arts in Theatre from the University of Missouri-Columbia. I finished graduate work at Tulane University with a Master of Fine Arts in Costume and Scenery Design.
