She infuses these administrative experiences in the management of arts and business into the classroom curriculum and, as a photographer, encourages students to view their educational experience and career through their own unique lens.

“Through the Business Arts Management program, students combine their love of the arts with sound business practices and hands-on practical experiences – all designed to help students refine their business acumen and management skills and prepare them for a career in the arts upon graduation. Earning a degree in Business Arts Management at an arts and design school adds to the uniqueness of a degree earned in this area of study at SFUAD and ensures a creative approach to the business side of the arts.”
