About the Instructor
My early interest in rocks and gemstones led me to become a member of a local geology club. As a teenager, I learned to make and repair jewelry while working at The Mother Bead in downtown Green Bay, and for the past six years I've created jewelry using silver, semi-precious stones and pearls. During the summer of 2018, I assisted with the jewelry-making courses for the Youth Summer Art Workshops. In other interests, I am an avid reader and collect art, which led me to serve as secretary for the Mayor's Beautification Committee, a committee which advised elected officials in the City of Green Bay on policy concerning environmental quality-of-life issues, aesthetics, and the arts. I am currently employed as a technical assistant for the pre-American history website, Labaye.org.
