"I am from the Midwest and have been a student all my life. I see myself as a lifelong learner, continually pursuing my interests through reading, conferences, personal discussions and exhibiting my artwork. I love to explore; I enjoy seeing new places and trying new things, but it is also a challenge to be out of my comfort zone, a challenge which I embrace. I have had many opportunities for travel and research during my college career, attending Haystack in Maine, Arrowmont and SECAC in Tennessee, OCAC in Portland and even an independent research trip to Santiago, Chile and Mendoza, Argentina. These trips and experiences have informed my teaching and interpersonal skills by allowing me to interact with many types of personalities. Travel and education have both honed my problem solving skills, enhanced my creativity, as well as leaving me with a love of adventure. My limitations, strengths, weaknesses continue to evolve as does my awareness of them."
