"I joined Uptown Crawlers for the Uptown Whittier ArtCrawl Festival in September 2014.
With over 25 years in organization methods, research, interpretation, written and oral presentation, music production, video production, art show production, and art/music based community event production, and more, I bring a broad range of experience to the Uptown Crawlers.
My passions are my family, the community, literacy, and the arts and has served the community working in education for over 20 years and community volunteer for over 30 years.
Accidentally, being a mom, as it so often happens, I fell into the steps of production while interning for an international film and music distribution company. I always loved the arts, poetry, literature, film, and music, being my first loves. While my children where school aged, they began participating in music, dance and theater, sports as well, but always coming back to the arts. Because of their involvement in these activities, I volunteered to be on booster clubs, quickly becoming vice president, ways and means, treasurer, seamstress and costume maker, roadie, library and garden enthusiast, appreciator of art and music. Once my children grew up, I continued to volunteer in the community and eventually connected with producer, Sandra Hahn and Marie Ortiz, I was volunteering, Ms. Hahn was organizing and Ms. Ortiz was working the Uptown Whittier Parade. It was a match made in heaven as we hit it off so well working as three separate entities for the common good of the local and surrounding communities. I have worked as a court runner supervisor, executive secretary, purchasing agent, accounting, film script analyst, event coodinator, video production, public speaker, and have worked in libraries and literacy programs for over 20 years."
