The dynamic medium of theatre has been the spring board and foundation of my life's work. I have produced, directed, taught, written, performed, consulted and lead workshops in a multitude of ways related to communicating through the dramatic arts. I am also the mother of two grown children, making this role without a doubt the most challenging and rewarding. These rich life experiences have helped shape my belief that as cultural boundaries merge and the immediacy of technology moves us in exciting new directions, the need for strong interpersonal communication skills increases. My dedication to making the skills inherent in this rich art form accessible to all, is a mission to which I am profoundly committed.
