Over the years while working for myself I have had the opportunity to work with so many talented people!  One of my favorite shops to contract in was the Steelcase Model shop, where I now work full time!

The Model shop team is exceptional and is made up of a diverse mix of talent, skills and experiences.

I am excited and thankful to have the opportunity to participate not only as a Model maker but contribute my environmental passions, volunteering desires and of course they tolerate my need for humor/nonsense. 


I am truly excited to have crossed paths with this group, they are doing such important work within our community!  I will be serving on their board of directors and participating in as many events/classes as possible.

We provide a nurturing environment where professional teaching artists and designers work with middle and high school students from all backgrounds to inspire curiosity, develop talent, and build 21st century skills.

Sharing a solution for near sighted children living in poverty

Meeting Eugene Koning in 2015, I was soon captivated by his life long dedication and passion to help the less fortunate with sight.
I helped to develop his process of making glasses for near sighted children and traveled to India for two conferences sponsored by Partners Worldwide.
Today I am still searching for a champion to help make this solution a reality.
