I’ve always loved to learn new things, teach others and do so in a way that is fun and creative.
I got my BS in Early Childhood Education from the University of Vermont. I owned and operated a toddler play school for 7 years before I had my 3 girls (now 5, 5 and 3). For the past 2 years, I’ve been teaching my own literacy based art curriculum for toddlers and preschoolers at South Shore Learning Lab (where I was awarded “Best Art Class” by Macaroni Kid) and at Mamas Move. I had been teaching adult and kid sewing classes at the South Shore Learning Lab as well as here at The Makery before I bought the Studio in September of 2015.
Growing up, my creativity was always supported. My Mom and Nana were always making things, and took the time and patience to help me learn different ways of expressing my creativity and breaking down my ideas into workable steps to allow them come to life. If I needed a costume or a new dress, off to the fabric store we went to look through the pattern books and find the perfect fabric. Throughout my life, being a Maker has always been a big part of who I am. I love sewing things for my children, gifts for others and for my little shop, Seaside Dandelions. I love teaching people to sew, encouraging their creativity and watching them challenge themselves and create awesome stuff!
