Why do you like teaching children?

I enjoy teaching children because it reminds me of younger me when I started KOMA and remembering how much fun I had every day. I want to create that same atmosphere I experienced as a kid going to KOMA because it was truly one of my favorite memories from when I was younger.

What do you love most about your job?

My favorite part about working at KOMA is seeing kids’ faces light up with joy after they finally get a technique or form after working hard for several classes.

What is your favorite quote?

“Wanting to be someone else is a waste of the person you are” -Marilyn Monroe

What other hobbies do you have?

Reading, listening to music, spending time with family and friends, painting, and baking!
