Age: 26

Occupation: Business owner and art teacher at KaleidoKids Art Studio in Russellville Downtown.

Hometown: Russellville/River Valley native, RHS and ATU graduate.

Family: I work every day at the studio with my husband, Daniel and our 18-month-old daughter, Finnli.

1) What is your favorite book and why?

Elizabeth Gilbert’s Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear. It is full of inspiration and challenges to live up to your real creative potential. I love it, and I often need reminders!

2) Dog or cat?

Dog. They’re more high-maintenance but so much more fun! I don’t think I have ever not had a dog at home.

3) What’s the best thing about living in the River Valley?

I love living in the River Valley and being able to know so many people here. I’m a people person, so I love being able to go downtown or to the coffee shop and see people I know every day.The River Valley has the great qualities of a big town while still feeling like a small, tight-knit community.

4) What’s something no one would ever guess about you?

I’m an author! Daniel and I just finished our very first book —The Beginner Art Book for Kids. It is available to buy at our studio as well as on Amazon, at Barnes & Noble and Books A Million!

5) What is your favorite music genre and artist?

I listen to just about anything on the radio, but anyone who has seen the sticker of his face on my computer would know that I love Justin Timberlake. I still haven’t gotten over *NSYNC and I’ll love JT forever.

6) What do you nerd out on?

Planners. I’m not great at sticking to one way of planning, so I’m constantly buying a new planner and carrying at least three planners or notebooks with me. I have a really heavy purse.

7) If you could change one thing about the River Valley, what would it be?

I’m sure there’s a better word for this, but — awareness. There are lots of awesome places and things happening here, but I always hear people say that there’s just nothing to do and nowhere to go. I think that a lot of people are in their own little bubble and don’t realize how cool of a place this is.

8) Where is the one location in the River Valley you would tell a first-time visitor that they must go?

Downtown! Not just because we own a business downtown (shout-out Kaleidoclasm and KaleidoKids), but there are so many cool things to check out that a lot of people don’t know about. Park on one side of Russellville Downtown and take a walk to see what you find — art galleries, awesome restaurants, and plenty of free events throughout the year.

9) Pizza, tacos, cheeseburger, or fried chicken?

Always pizza. I could eat pizza for every meal, every day, no problem. But don’t feed me cold pizza.

10) What is your favorite quote? Could be from an inspirational person or an original.

A quote that seems very fitting right now: “You can measure your worth by your dedication to your path, not by your successes or failures.” – Elizabeth Gilbert, Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear
