I have experience working with JS Pottery, Silver Hammer Studios, the Catawba River Artisans, the Mint Museum of Charlotte and Gaston School of the Arts.

At Queens University of Charlotte, I have been awarded over $34,000 worth of scholarships annually, including art and art history scholarships based on merit. I am a member of the Art Club, Photography Club, Dance Club, President's Club, and Phi Mu female fraternity.

We are trying to set a campus-wide foundation for positive body-image and good self-worth.
