Working on her PhD at the Univ. of Georgia, she taught multicultural art education in UGA study abroad students in Cuba. Her teaching experience is extensive. She brought Kappa Pi International Art Fraternity to Brunswick Community College, after building the art program. This was only the 2nd community college in the USA to receive this honor. In 2016 she was diagnosed with breast cancer & is a survivor. In 2017, she lost her fiancé due to alcoholism & in 2018 was kidnapped in Peru.
