I've always considered myself a Treasure Hunter. I dug for treasures in students in high school theater and choir programs around the country as a theater director and choreographer for 10 years, showing children and teens that they DID have the confidence and the skill to perform on stage. Then one day I met a child who shared with me her story of homelessness and neglect and told me that the treasures I'd found in her had made her rich. Then I knew, I needed to find a band of treasure hunters as eager as I was to dig into kids. In 2007 I found Free Arts.
