Why hello there!
I’m Yong, a former professional dancer, world traveler, and curious soul. I currently lives at the base of the gorgeous Ruby Mountains in Nevada with my hubby, two dancing daughters, and a menagerie of creatures.
I’ve been unleashing Super Powers in kids of all ages since 2001 when I founded Academy of the Arts in Elko, NV. I’m also the host of the weekly podcast, Raising smART Kids 2.0, and Author of Raising A Superhero: How to Unleash Your Child’s 8 Super Powers & Propel Learning Through the Arts.
I am a lover of learning, and have a Master’s Degree in Kinesiology and Health (University of Wyoming) and a Bachelor’s Degree in Health Education (University of Nevada). In my spare time, I can often be found curled up with my kids or a good book and a great cup of coffee.
