She is currently working at the Waldorf School of Tampa Bay and is the founder/Artistic Director of Starlite Puppets: http://www.starlitepuppets.blogspot.com/ Throughout childhood she loved performing! It was to her a vehicle to connect with others in a joyful, meaningful way. Hand in hand came a love for working with children, which in high school. Not long after completing a theatre arts degree, she was asked by a fellow graduate to help perform puppet stories for school children. Later after beginning the journey as a teacher in a classroom, whenever a puppet troupe traveled to our school, it was unforgettable for her to see how strongly the children connected with the puppets! The journey continued after beginning my Waldorf teacher training, where she discovered a treasure trove of nurturing stories, and a puppet storytelling style adored by children. She loves watching members of a community join together and open to the magic within a story told with puppets. The experience invites the audience members to slow down, to create within themselves a place for something new and wonder-filled to happen, and to enter into the simplicity and beauty with their imaginations.
