I was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. I have three children. My youngest daughter Zoey is a high school junior, my son Jake is a psychology major in college and my oldest daughter Haley is a photography major in college. I love to travel and have been to 10 countries so far. I am also a HUGE baseball fan (go Yankees) and I am trying to visit all 30 major league ballparks. I love animals and currently have two dogs, two cats and a bearded dragon, all rescues. This is my 15th year teaching art.
