She received a MFA in Visual Arts from Lesley University College of Art + Design in 2018, after having a career as a nurse, administrator and psychotherapist for thirty-six years. All her educational degrees prior to her MFA were completed at The University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, PA. In 2019 she was selected as an Apprentice at The Fabric Workshop and Museum, Philadelphia, PA.
