Our Team

In a nutshell, my purpose in life is to love, honor and educate your child. I see it as my job to empower the children I have been blessed to work with. You will find that I teach lessons that can be applied to all areas of their lives. I expect my students to focus, and to learn to manage the pressures of this industry. Because I expect it of them, I have found they deliver. I will push them past their “comfort zone”. My goal is for them to truly discover who they are, who they can be, and what kind of work ethic they have. I believe this can only be done in a positive environment where they feel safe. Once they define themselves, no one else will be able to do that for them!

Yes, I am a true Texan, and call Dallas my home with my husband and 3 boys. A graduate from The Arts Magnet at Booker T. Washington in Dallas, I discovered my passion early on for directing, producing stage shows, and casting. I have been honored to work with the following top commercial clients for years.
