"I grew up in the most loving, accepting, fun, and empowering studio environment. I loved being there! My studio director was more than a teacher - she was a mentor, mother, therapist, role model, and dear friend to every student enrolled. I want my students to know that same feeling - I want them to leave INSPIRE and feel empowered! My goal and mission for INSPIRE School for the Arts is to do just as our name suggests - to inspire students to fall in love with the arts, their achievements, and themselves."
