I specialize in costume design, costume technology, and hair and makeup for the stage. Besides working professionally as a designer and technician, I am also an educator; I am deeply passionate about helping to instill a love of my craft and teaching tools and techniques that will help students grow and pursue their own passions in theatre and beyond.
Originally from Kansas, I have had the pleasure to work and study in a wide variety of venues and institutions around the country. I have loved every opportunity to act as both collaborator and mentor.
I hold my Masters of Fine Arts for Costume Design and Production from the University of Alabama as well as my Bachelor of Fine Arts in Theatre from Emporia State University.
Currently, I am serving as the Visiting Assistant Professor of Costumes for the University of Central Missouri.
