Director of Teen Programs

Hey, I’m Betsy. I am a creative person, educator, and advocate for teen arts education. At the ICA, I work with and for teens to create dynamic and essential programs, opportunities, and experiences. Previously, I worked with teens at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and New-York Historical Society. I also taught as an adjunct lecturer in the Federated History Department of New Jersey Institute of Technology and Rutgers University-Newark. I have a B.A. in History from New York University and an M.A. in Medieval Studies from University College Dublin.  

When I was a teen, dance was my primary passion, art form, and source of community. I am driven to create spaces where teens feel as free and supported as I did thanks to the amazing dancers and dance educators of my hometown – Cleveland, Ohio. My current creative pursuits center around education, movement, textiles, and cooking.
