I relocated to Delaware from Atlanta, Georgia and am currently located in the Milford area. I am an avid animal lover who currently lives with two dogs and two cats. I am a creative and inspired artist as well as a motivated people-person. I take customer service experiences very seriously, even in the very relaxed art community.

I am a go-getter who enjoys the structure of the work day but is also able to handle the hurdles of things that could change the routine.
