S P E A K I N G   M Y   T R U T H

I am a 19 year breast cancer survivor.  My diagnosis came at age 36 and completely rocked my world.  I am BRCA1+. 

In the life and aftermath of this highly aggressive disease, I dove deep into the breadth of my creative practice and ultimately found my true nature, my voice and my calling.  

I am a founding member of the South Carolina Chapter of the National Association of Women Artists and I teach art to more than 200 students at 

May River Montessori in Bluffton, SC. 

A school counselor by training and trade, my main focus is on instilling a mindset where students feel free to soar in self-expression, self-love, and creative discovery. To experience children's genuine bliss when they delight in the artistic process is a blessing to behold.  To have found a higher purpose within a phenomenal school community that's in a geographical and spiritual sanctuary is beyond anything I ever imagined!

I have been donating to Play for P.I.N.K. fundraisers around the country for many years and I encourage all women with an early history of cancer to inquire about genetic testing.  It can help inform treatment decisions, prevent unnecessary surgeries, and ultimately save lives.
