Pennsylvania Quality Assurance System Certified

The PQAS certificate is given by the PA Keys to Professional Development. The certificate certifies the recipient to be able to instruct directors and early childhood practioners in the areas of the presenters expertise. My areas of expertise include dramatic arts, literacy and communication with children and parents.


My heart's desire is to help those who are hurting in all aspects of their life, but especially those who are hurting spiritually and emotionally. I believe God has placed in me gifts and talents to be used to help His children and those who have not yet come to know Him or His son Jesus. We all learn different ways, but what we have experienced is the best method of all. I believe the dramatic arts is an awesome way to help people express themselves, see themselves and gain a new understanding of how much God loves us all and wants us healed.


My interests include going to see plays, reading, writing stories, writing and directing plays, praise dance, sewing, decorating, playing computer games and listening to music.
