About Me

 Thoughtfully managing crises is something we all share as a personal and professional responsibility living in an uncertain age.  As a pracademic, my research and teaching methods in arts emergency management focus on connecting disaster studies to practical tools and models that can be used by any arts manager and artist, no matter their discipline. 

I am a woman, a mother, a musician—raised in the Missouri Ozarks.
