Here is a little history about me:
My husband, Bo, and I are native Arkansans and we have two children, Collin and Benjamin, ages 6 and 4. I began my career as an art educator with the Fayetteville public school district after graduating from the University of Arkansas in 2008 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Art Education Pre-K – 12th grade. In addition to serving nine years as a public school educator, I have continued to support our region by working for community organizations including The Center for Art and Education in Van Buren and Lifestyles, Inc. in Fayetteville.
As an avid trail and endurance runner, the trails of Hobbs are my home away from home. Trail running has instilled in me a respect and love for nature and its’ resources that I am eager to share with my volunteers. I am also an active member of the Rowing Club of Northwest Arkansas Board of Directors where I also spend time sculling and sweep rowing. I love to utilize my background in art through baking and my cookie art has received numerous recognitions including national and international publications. Additionally, I partnered with the Fayetteville Chamber of Commerce as a contributing watercolor artist to the children’s book, Goodnight Fayetteville.
I am excited to work in close communication and unison with you to achieve goals, build and uphold resource stewardship, and bring awareness to the diversity of life at Hobbs!
