Advice to Incoming Students

Leave your fears at home but bring your enthusiasm for learning! People will pour into you at Taylor like you won’t believe.

Why I Came to Taylor

My husband and I had a very clear calling from God to come to Taylor in 2005. Taylor’s an amazing place, and we’ve had a great time growing the program in film and media production here. It’s such a joy to see our alumni become great visual storytellers in entertainment, news, corporate, and nonprofit settings.


Photography, perennial flower gardening, playing with my dog Jack, watching my son play soccer, and hanging out with my husband, John.

Major Career Accomplishments

I’ve been a magazine editor, freelance & corporate video producer/writer and more recently the executive producer of award-winning student documentaries. In the past, I worked in broadcasting at the Sydney and Atlanta Olympics and the Goodwill Games in NYC. Each January, I take a group of students to the Sundance Film Festival as part of a course in independent film.
