She has developed and taught numerous arts & educational programs for youth, elders and adults with a primary focus on teens. As an educator in Boston, San Francisco, Oakland and Santa Rosa, she has worked in many communities and non-profits, as well as hundreds of public schools.  In addition to her role as certified Restorative Trainer with Community Matters, she manages an adult restorative program for young adults referred out of the judicial system for the restorative process.

She holds a 4 year Studio Arts Diploma from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, and a BA in Humanities from New College of California, focused on conflict facilitation.
