Meet Our Board
I am the proud mom of two very creative souls. When raising my children I wanted to give them the chance to explore many things so they could find their passions. When their creativity and love of the arts blossomed I realized that more important than natural talent was the gifts they received from the arts. When Gabi’s dance teacher shared how she glued nickels on the shoes of children she provided free dance lessons to in order to create tap shoes it was a stark reminder of the inequities that exist in our World. The idea for Access 2 the Arts was born because every child deserves to have access 2 the arts and to nurture their inner artist. We hope you join us on this journey🦋🎼🌻

I’ve been immersed in the arts for as long as i can remember. Being a Dancer since the age of 3, starting vocal lessons at the age of 9, then picking up guitar & piano at 11+12, the arts run in my blood. I’m a born “storyteller” and humanitarian committed to creating a world where everyone knows they are a unique and important member of our society. I’m an Artist to my soul, having received a bachelor of music from the Berklee College of Music with a dual degree in Songwriting and Professional Music with concentrations in music business and music production. As well as a Master degree form Berklee NYC in Musical theater writing and design. I wouldn’t be the person I am today without the arts and the world desperately needs more creatives.I learned from a young age that not every kid gets to experience the arts, that made me extremely sad and pushed me to create this organization at the age of 14.The goal is to break down the barrier so more kids can experience what the arts have to provide and find their own voice.
