I graduated from Edinboro University in 2019 and stayed in Edinboro for an extra year in a graduate position as a post-bachelorette opportunity.  During my time there, I discovered my love for being in a studio, using my hands, and working with such wonderful and strong material like metal. I found myself especially drawn to hammer forming techniques and fascinated in the intimate relationship I was able to have with the materials. I had a hard time pulling myself away from the studio.
