Artist Statement

I believe there is no better environment in which to teach while entertaining than theater and music.  It is what I have devoted my life to.  I use my talents and craft as an artist (actress, musician, songwriter/singer, puppeteer, storyteller) to inspire people.  I believe that teaching an art form and using it to enhance literacy skills or helping out with social problems can do a lot for a community.  I came to NYC five years ago with degrees in an acting and theater in education.  Soon after, I started engaging and teaching youth through theater and music, working for several different educational theater companies in NYC.  I love what I do because I believe in the power of theater and music to reach a community and engage it in learning from another perspective.  I would like to share my love and passion for theater, music, and learning with the Westchester community where I now reside.  I have experience teaching students from all ages, from babies, toddlers, Pre-K, K, elementary, middle school, high school, to adults and senior citizens.  I am bilingual (English/Spanish) and have the skills to adapt and change when needed.
