I am a passionate unrelenting creative. InterPlay has healed my soul, joyfully informed my artistic daily practices, and equipped me with precious tools to guide others whether it be in the university classroom or community playroom. I support the right of everyone to communicate their truth freely and powerfully. InterPlay has transformed me as an educator, connecting me deeply with students and workshop participants establishing trust leading to positive unexpected outcomes. I teach scientists, engineers, business people, artists, internationals and more. I’m excited to be co-founder of Sustaining International Sisters using InterPlay to empower all women.
