Hello from Mrs. Groves at WCC.
I am a passionate artist: photographer first. I love taking photos, especially senior photos. My passion runs deep - I first started my career as a magazine graphic designer & layout artist. Following that, I had a 13-year career at Vivid Impressions Photography Studio. In 2014 I went part-time with my photography and began a rewarding teaching career at Waynesville Career Center (WCC). This allows me to teach new designers and digital artists magazine design, photography, page layout, and much more!
My career began with training through CTE education at then (WTA), and now I teach the very SAME class I took as a JR & SR in high school. I have owned and operated two creative industry businesses; trained and managed a great team of employees, and extended my knowledge through additional education. I attended UCM'S career education program, Drury for art education, and am currently finishing my marketing degree at WGU. I look forward to partnering with this year's students and community members to make a lasting impact through innovative designs.
