About Me
I have been living in Maine with my family for the past 12 years and am making a move to the Pioneer Valley to work at Smith College as the Publicity Manager for the Arts promoting the events of the Theatre, Music and Dance Departments. I am also a performer and stand-up instructor/coach. I have three fantastic college-age daughters and a husband who can be found in the garden when he isn't working on feature films in NYC.
