I was lucky enough to attend Los Angeles City Schools at a time when the district offered many opportunities for involvement in the arts. My classmates and I explored visual arts with an art teacher, sang in school choruses, and played in school orchestras. We rode yellow buses on field trips to concerts and operas. These experiences have continually enriched my life and offered support in comfortable and challenging times.
After raising a family in Millington, NJ I returned to school and received a Masters degree from Bank Street College in Mathematics Education. Working as a Math Coordinator in public and private schools in New York City I became acutely aware of the educational discrepancies not only in academics but especially in the arts. Math classes were not cut. Music classes were. After moving to Princeton I looked for opportunities to support arts education, especially in public schools
I have been privileged to serve serving on Princeton area boards including Passage Theatre, Princeton Adult School, and Princeton Pro Musica. I am now lucky to have the chance to be a part of Young Audiences and to support their vision that every child will have rich and meaningful arts experience a
