Over the past decade, she has enjoyed “sharing the lettering love” by teaching 100’s of in-person and (more recently) virtual classes to individuals, dozens of cool companies for their employees, to social groups, at museums (including the MFA and ICA), and in classrooms (including Boston and Brookline Public Schools) and at colleges (including BU and Northeastern). She has appeared many times on-site for “live” calligraphy and hand-engraving for clients including Saks Fifth Avenue, Sephora, Victoria's Secret, J.
