My Story:

I was born and raised in Maryville, Tennessee and currently reside in Knoxville. I have always enjoyed working with children and I am very creative. I have used my creativity in a variety of work experiences with clients of all ages on a range of problem areas. I feel that children express their feelings and emotions more when engaged in a creative outlet.  While incorporating play-based and art activities, children can identify and express feelings and emotions, gain self-confidence, increase communication skills, and become more responsible, productive members of society.
