Upcoming Workshops and Events!
UPDATE: I am in the busy process of transferring from Clark College to WSU Vancouver (yay!), but I sadly do not have the time to offer fall workshops this year (Thank you for your patience with me, this degree will surely be worth it). Please check back in the spring, sign up for my newsletter, or follow me on Instagram and Facebook to hear when new workshops are posted.
