I am recently retired from serving as Director of Education at the Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens in Jacksonville, Florida. A former middle and high school teacher, curator and educational technology liaison, I oversaw all educational programming at The Cummer including the school tour program, the Weaver Academy of Art at the Cummer, the museum’s distance-learning partnership with the Schultz Center for Teaching & Leadership, and the annual VSA Festival.
I am a member of the board of VSA Florida, a state organization dedicated to bringing arts to people with disabilities, and also mentor teachers and model classroom lessons at Ortega Elementary School’s Museum Magnet program.
