How did you get started in this business?

I was a teacher in the Juneau School District and in the Anchorage School District for several years. I wanted to combine teaching with a love of art and an interest in developing my own ideas.

Who was your mentor, and how have they influenced you?

I have had so much support from friends and family. I am surrounded with a wonderful network of women who are able to provide input and ideas. I definitely don't feel like I am alone in this endeavor.
