Earning a B.S. in Education (1994, APSU) and M.A. in Education (1996, TNU); I taught in public schools for eight years. In 1997, I began teaching scrapbook and rubber stamp classes on local and national levels. My work became published in national craft magazines in 1998; and I was awarded "Memory Makers Master" in 2003. My craft classes and design work continued as I moved across the country with my husband’s military career. Colorado Springs has become "home" for our family, and I planted roots and became a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator to share quality designs, amazing product lines, education, and build friendships.
