An illustrated portrait of Emily smiling while wearing retro-shaped dark rimmed glasses

Hi there! I'm Emily.
An art teacher and former chocolate sculptress.

I'm a licensed art educator that is seeking a position within K–12 art in northern Vermont where I can share my contagious enthusiasm for all things crafty. A smiling illustrated sun rising from the lower right hand corner, the message says 'Not yet, but you will'

Previously I worked at a chocolate company where I lead demonstrations, taught classes, and created retail specialty products for 20 years.

My happiest moments came while integrating art into my job. Specifically building chocolate sculptures that were used in our stores, featured on the Food Network, and put on exhibit at the Shelburne Museum.

Working with chocolate was a blast, but it was time for a change. I've always been grateful for the guidance of my art teachers and now I’m hoping I can help kids find their creative spark. ✨

From chocolate to crochet, I'm best when working with my hands — I'm a perpetual doodler, amateur baker, and retro treasure seeker. You'll always catch me laughing at a good pun. Learn more about me.
