Additional Skills

I am currently an acting teacher and director of school productions.
I own and operate my own small business making scrapbooks for others. My company can be investigated further at http://www.scrapbookmemories4u.com.
I volunteer with children in a reading program twice a week and at my children's school as parent rep for grade 2&4. This gives me an opportunity to read aloud for young children at story time and has sharpened my ability to narrate and voice over children's material.
