Due to being a grad student at SOU, I am only able to teach a few classes this term. Thank you for understanding.

For a little more about my educational journey and what I’ve been up to I added a brief update below.

Creative Dance For Children ardently serves ALL people of varying abilities, races, genders and identities. We promote anti-racist awareness and inspire compassion and empathy in all.

CDFC offers priority enrollment and additional financial support to any student from historically marginalized groups.

I am SO excited to dance with kids again this winter!

Hi Everyone!
What am I studying at SOU?
I went back to school in the Fall of 2021 (I was barely sophomore standing after dropping out of SOU back in 2001) cause I LOVE doing social justice work and am passionate about creating a more inclusive community that celebrates diversity. The program I entered to finish my undergraduate degree is called Innovation and Leadership and my original minor was Ethnic and Racial Studies. I have since added a Criminal Justice minor and entered into a 3+1 Pathway program that has provided me with an incredible opportunity to work toward my Masters in Business Administration. So, I will graduate this June with both a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree. I am also working as a special events coordinator graduate assistant on campus, which I love.
What am I going to do when I graduate?
Anyone have a job for me with a regular paycheck and benefits? No, but seriously, I don’t know yet. I love SOU and think it would be a great professional environment, but I am still uncertain about the next chapter after this student journey – a little scary frankly.
A few more fun facts:
I am still volunteering on Ashland’s Public Arts Advisory Committee and I LOVE it! We are constantly working to be more art to this community 🙂
We still have three bunnies, four ducks, and one wonderfully sweet dog.
I am headed to visit my little sister in Nicaragua from December 13-22 with my mom, she’s the one doing that cool flip in the photo above the bathroom at Studio Z.
My family is doing great and hopefully Aziza, Kofi, and Pai will dance with us this winter as helpers again.
Other questions or things your kids want to share with me?
You have my number and text is the best way for me to be in touch.
I have deeply missed being with the kids for the past few months and can’t wait for the hugs, silliness, and dancing to come!
