Art / Student Council

Welcome to THE OCHS Art Department!   I teach all Art classes.  I also teach Leadership and am the advisor for the *amazing* High School Student Council. 

I've been teaching here at OCHS since 2001 and this is my 25th year to teach.  I'm an OCHS graduate.  After teaching at other schools, I was honored to be able to come back home to be with my fellow REBELS.  I'm very proud to be a Rebel!  My husband of 24 years is also a Rebel graduate.  We have two children--one is a OCHS graduate and the other is in 8th grade this year.  We attend Cedar Springs Baptist Church and are active in our community as much as possible. 

I'm so excited and BLESSED to be at OCHS.  I absolutely love what I do!
