She took a beginning quilting class at Wish Upon a Quilt in Raleigh, NC and she's been quilting ever since. She discovered Studio Design in 2016 and in 2019 began teaching the tools at the same shop where she learned to quilt. In 2020 she went through training to become a Studio 180 Design Certified Instructor. She loves to show her students how to get precision in their piecing and helping them find joy in their hobby.
