Hi! I'm a singer, songwriter, musician, puppet storyteller, & teaching artist. Upon graduation, I was asked by a fellow theatre arts student to help perform puppetry in her troupe, which offered shows for young children in schools in Va. I jumped at the opportunity and I've been playing with puppets ever since! Later in 1990 I founded and became the artistic director for Starlite Puppets. I have shared live music and the magic of puppetry with children of all ages as a professional puppet story teller in numerous settings throughout the United States. During the 10 years I have lived in Florida, Starlite's puppetry and music have been featured in the Herald-Tribune, Pelican Press, Natural Awakenings, Positive Change and on Youtube with The Observer Media Group. I am member of AFTA (Association of Florida Teaching Artists).
The combination of a B.F.A. in Theatre Arts and a Master's Degree in Waldorf Early Childhood education has supported my desire to awaken delight and creativity in the hearts of young and old. It's a true delight and privilege to lead workshops for parents, performing artists, teachers and children in singing, plant dyeing, practical and artistic activities for the early childhood classroom, and in joyful explorations in puppet making and production. I am currently serving as a kindergarten teacher and Grades music teacher for Suncoast Waldorf School. Want to transform an 'ordinary' event into an extraordinary experience filled with live music, puppetry, musical participation from guests, and more? Why Starlite Puppets? Because everyone needs a little magic! www.starlitepuppets.blogspot.com.
